A comprehensive treatment of the current concern with values in education. In six volumes, a team of over 120 contributors and experts from around the world examine the issues and place them in a context of culture and diversity. Volumes 1 to 3 provide a wide-ranging consideration of the diversity of values in education at all levels, and thus represents a framework for the focus of Volumes 4 to 6, which focus more specifically on values education (moral, religious, spiritual and political). Overall the six volumes bring together the fundamental domain of values with the important issue of pluralism and the world of independent cultural traditions, to generate new, fruitful and progressive reflection and exemplars of good practice. Handomsley bound and printed they are an essential reference tool and represent a significant contribution of interest and benefit to educators, policy makers, parents, academic, researchers and student teachers.
Volume 1 is concerned with the theoretical and conceptual framework for reflecting about values, culture and education and thus provides an introduction to the series as a whole. It provides state and policy level analysis across the world.
