The books in this series are written primarily for two types of clientele: those engaged in educational planning and administration, in developing as well as developed countries; and those, such as senior government officials and policy-makers, seeking a more general understanding of educational planning and how it relates to national development. They are intended to be of use either for private study or in formal training programmes.
International Schools: Growth and Influence
This publication provides an insight to the origins and characteristics of international schools, curriculum and assessment, students and teaching staff, and the management, leadership and governance of these schools. It also discusses how international schools (usually private and fee-paying) might develop in the future against a backdrop of growing forces of globalization and other international influences. In all cases, attention is drawn to the implications of the issues discussed for both policy-makers and planners in national and international contexts.
