Active participation in processes of change are an essential aspect of community participation, and proper recognition of opportunities for participation facilitate community engagement nationally and internationally. Education and its relation to citizenship in recent years has become one of the most important fields of research. From different areas and contexts, it has been revealed that there is a prevailing need for education for citizens to take part actively in the processes of change and improvement that the current global situation requires. The Handbook of Research on Education for Participative Citizenship and Global Prosperity is a pivotal reference source focusing on the productions and fields of study that are carried out all over the world on education for citizenship, namely the devices that provide young people with the consciousness and highlight the aspects of an active democratic life. While highlighting topics such as citizenship identity, educational policy, and social justice, this publication explores participation instruction, as well as the methods of community involvement. This book is ideally designed for educational administrators, policymakers, researchers, professionals, and educators seeking current research on instructional methods for teaching active community and political involvement.

This study is concerned with creativity in education - especially in arts education (broadly conceived to include the visual arts, music, and creative writing). It takes as its starting point Nietzsche's view that works of art do not appear "as if by magic". Using insights from philosophy, psychoanalysis, and semiotics, the book examines the creative processes of many artists in different media, showing how art works often result from processes of construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction that may be long and laborious. Pigrum demonstrates how teachers and their students in all sectors of education may gain from a better, systematic, understanding of such processes.

Higher education provision is an essential component (socially as well as economically) of modern social structures. British Labour and Higher Education focuses on the development of Labour policy on higher education from 1945 to 2000. It analyses the rapid expansion and series of fundamental transformations in higher education and Labour's part in both shaping and reacting to them. The authors explore the historical evolution and Labour's varying policy initiatives in the period, and question the place higher education has occupied in the various strands of Labour ideology. As always with 'Labourism', perspectives are contentious and contested, spanning the centralist 'Fabians', the liberal moralists, and the socialist left. How far, if at all, have Labour's policy stances in this area confronted the elite social reproduction functions of universities or the instrumentalist needs of corporate capitalism? Has this policy evolution given concrete evidence to support Ralph Miliband's pessimistic assessment of 'Labourism' as a political formation structurally unable to confront capitalist social structures, or to see a viable 'Third Way', as advocated by New Labour?

This book examines the approach to civic education in six societies located on the Pacific Rim: Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, and the US. In these scrupulously designed studies, the contributors investigate the recent re-emergence of civic education in this region. Developments such as globalization, nationalism, and sovereignty have profound effects on how schools make "good citizens." These essays reveal how definitions of citizenship are contested and revised under such influences, and interrogate differences in civic education from nation to nation. As societies attempt to strike a balance between obedience and critical thinking, schools become the primary site of these transformations. Analyzing both educational policy and its implementation, these contributors offer a groundbreaking, comparative study that grounds civic education historically and politically.

This comprehensive volume features essays on education in modern Taiwan, each coauthored by a Chinese scholar and an American counterpart. The work furthers understanding and communication between two diverse cultures. The focus is on how another society is attempting to deal with issues in education currently being addressed in Western academic and political circles. Taiwan is a particularly good example for educators in the United States to study because the country is one of the most dynamic, fast changing and economically successful societies in the world, using the vehicle of education to assure social harmony and the self-actualization of its students and to prepare students for careers in business, science, government service and service-oriented careers. The team approach to each essay assures that no published research from either culture has been overlooked. Some of the research is field based; others use more traditional research methodology. Other societies can be viewed as laboratories where experiments in educational excellence are taking place and where Americans can learn how to better educate students. Schooling has many common elements worldwide--much education has been shaped by Western practices. In Taiwan the ethos shows a Western pattern of organization and a highly technological orientation side by side with traditional Chinese values. This "laboratory" lets us see how innovations and reforms work and how to spot pitfalls. Students in a variety of Education courses will benefit from these skillfully written articles. The Confucian Continuum demonstrates the successes that education has brought to the Chinese people of Taiwan and the problems that rapid modernization presents to the traditional education system.

Staatliche Schulen sind in die Kritik geraten, was sich u.a. an einer stark gewachsenen Privatschullandschaft in Deutschland ablesen lässt. Ob aber Privatschulen tatsächlich eine bessere Alternative bedeuten, ist allein in diesem Trend nicht zu erkennen. Tatsächlich steht eine systematische Gegenüberstellung 'private' versus 'staatliche' Schule aus bildungs- und erziehungswissenschaftlicher Perspektive bisher nicht zur Verfügung. An diesem Punkt setzt dieser Band an, indem erstmals ein umfassender und systematischer Vergleich vorgenommen wird und damit neue Perspektiven für die Schulentwicklung dargestellt werden.

Seit längerem wird in der pädagogischen Fachliteratur der Befund diskutiert, dass Mädchen im Bildungssystem erfolgreicher sind als Jungen. Wie ist dieses Phänomen zu erklären? Hat die Pädagogik die Grenzen und Unterschiede zwischen den Geschlechtern unterschätzt? Die Debatte über Jungen und ihre Probleme ist von einer stark vereinfachenden Gewinn-Verlust-Rechnung und einer dramatisierenden Tonlage gekennzeichnet, die die Komplexität des Themas eher verdecken als aufzuklären vermögen. Ziel des Buches ist es, aus unterschiedlichen Blickwinkeln den aktuellen internationalen Forschungsstand und die thematischen Brennpunkte der aktuellen Jungendebatte zu erörtern. Daraus werden schließlich Perspektiven für eine kritische Pädagogik der Geschlechter für Jungen und Mädchen entwickelt.
