The Routledge International Companion to Education brings together a range of authoritative accounts of key issues facing educationalists as the new century begins. The volume contains over fifty major contributions exploring issues ranging from early childhood to adult education, from developments in the teaching of reading to challenges of peace education. The chapters are divided into five topic fields: *Foundations *Processes *Substantive Issues *Sectors *Subjects Each chapter gives a contemporary account of developments in the field, and looks to the future and the directions that new activity and enquiry is likely to take. All the chapters are written from an international perspective. The world of education is constantly in a state of transformation. The speed of change presents a formidable challenge to anyone looking across the field as a whole or any part of it. In one sense this has always been the case. Educationalists at the end of the last century would have looked with some awe at the expanding educational systems of the developed world and the daunting problems faced in extending educational opportunity to the rapidly growing global population. The early years of the twenty first century face similar challenges. Educational systems continue to expand and parts of the world's population still yearn for the benefits that formal schooling can bring. The twentieth century represents a period when mass primary and secondary school systems were being established. The twenty first century is likely to be dominated by the proliferation of new structures and organisations serving all years and presenting formal and informal opportunities for teaching and learning in forms that would have been undreamt of a century ago. The Routledge International Companion to Education aims to address the key issues underpinning the rethinking and restructuring of education at the beginning of the new millennium.
