Cowen, Robert – Comparative Education, 2018
One way to look at some of the scholars in English-language comparative education in the 1960s is to see them as being concerned with "methods." They themselves emphasised that they were re-thinking "method" in comparative education. Victories were won and courses were rewritten. That "historic" moment is taught (if…

Manzon, Maria – Comparative Education, 2018
This article questions some of our assumptions about the history of comparative education. It explores new scholarship on key actors and ways of knowing in the field. Building on the theory of the social constructedness of the field of comparative education, the paper elucidates how power shapes our scholarly histories and identities.

Epstein, Erwin H. – Comparative Education, 2018
It was not until the 1930s that comparative education, with the initiation of dedicated courses and programmes at universities in various countries, that the field became internationally recognised in its own right.

Adick, Christel – Comparative Education, 2018
The article draws attention to the forgotten ancestry of the "four steps of comparison" model (description--interpretation--juxtaposition--comparison). Comparativists largely attribute this to George Z. F. Bereday [1964. "Comparative Method in Education." New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston], but among German scholars, it is…

Comparative education is a field with a tradition that dates back to the beginning of the nineteenth century.

Manzon, Maria – Comparative Education, 2018
Comparative education is two centuries old. Many mainstream historical narratives claim that the field began with the iconic opus of Marc-Antoine Jullien de Paris (1817). This article offers to re-theorise the histories of comparative education. It suggests casting a far-sighted and panoramic look at the field's origins. An underlying assumption…

Lenhart, Volker – Comparative Education, 2018
From its very beginnings, we can discern two methodological approaches to comparative education; one broadly historical-philosophical-idiographic and another broadly empirical-positivist-nomothetic. Friedrich August Hecht's 1795-1798 "De re scholastica Anglica cum Germanica comparata" ("English and German school education…

Young, Natalie A. E. – Comparative Education, 2018
International schools are commonly depicted in the academic literature and popular press as offering elite educational credentials to an elite, oftentimes international, student body. In this paper, I draw on a case study of a Canadian international school to argue that a new form of international school is emerging in China--one that offers a…

Centeno, Vera G.; Kauko, Jaakko; Candido, Helena H. D. – Comparative Education, 2018
In our present research we address the question of whether it is valid to apply the Quality Assurance and Evaluation (QAE) umbrella concept, which was formulated to explain new phenomena in European educational governance, to similar developments in Brazilian basic education. This led us to reflect on the possible pitfalls and potential strengths…

Goodnight, Melissa Rae; Bobde, Savitri – Comparative Education, 2018
Including all children in large-scale educational studies is a pressing concern. Omitting certain types of children from studies can lead to skewed findings that promote inaccuracies about learning levels or educational quality. Increasingly, assessments are a method for investigating the quality of education systems, but national assessments are…

Barakat, Bilal; Bengtsson, Stephanie – Comparative Education, 2018
The age pattern of school entry reflects a complex social and empirical reality that is inadequately captured by a single number. Recognising these complexities in national and international research and policy discourse raises important but neglected questions around the identification of vulnerable groups, the relative value of pre-primary and…

Grey, Sue; Morris, Paul – Comparative Education, 2018
The OECD's PISA programme has been portrayed as central to the emergence of a regime of global educational governance and the subsequent convergence of policies towards a standardised model. Whilst there is an extensive literature describing PISA's impact on education policies, there is a paucity of analysis of how PISA data is presented to the…
