International and Overseas Schools: A Research Synthesis and Bibliography.
Willis, David B.
The growing interest in school cultures and multicultural education can be expected to generate an increasing interest in international schools and their roles in informing truly responsive multicultural/international education. Information about such schools is provided in this bibliographic essay, in which a review of literature examines the ethnographic, historical, and cross-cultural approaches. A trend in recent literature has been the shift from the concept of the international school as an American subculture in a foreign country to the school as a unique transcultural institution with a special ethos. The recommendation is made for the development of a research strategy that integrates disparate strands of focus into a conceptual framework. The essay is followed by an extensive reference list of doctoral dissertations on international schools, related topics, and Department of Defense schools, and a general bibliography.
