Gandara, Fernanda; Randall, Jennifer – Comparative Education Review, 2019
Monolingual content assessments of multilingual students remarkably fail their most essential endeavor--to provide meaningful information about their content proficiency. Multilingual students take years to catch up with their monolingual peers in terms of language proficiency, and it is inappropriate to assess them using a language that they do…

Adely, Fida; Haddad, Angela; Al-Husban, Abdel Hakim; Al-Khoshman, Afaf – Comparative Education Review, 2019
Jordanian families today face an educational edifice significantly changed by privatization, increased costs, and market-driven logics.

Specifically, we analyze the…

Lauglo, Jon; Liu, Fengshu – Comparative Education Review, 2019
Adolescent girls more often than boys expect higher education in nearly all 50 education systems in TIMSS 2011, before and after controls for effects of educational achievement, education-conducive family resources, and "liking school." At a macrolevel, this gender disparity is moderately correlated with the gender disparity in…

Meshulam, Assaf – Comparative Education Review, 2019
This article presents a comparative analysis of a metasynthesis of Israeli and US studies on parental choice of two-way bilingual education. My analysis reveals that the reasons majority-language and minority-language parents expressed in the US and Israeli studies converge in some aspects but, significantly, also diverge. I argue that the…

Dowd, Amy Jo; Bartlett, Lesley – Comparative Education Review, 2019
International education policy makers, donors, and implementers have heavily emphasized correct words per minute (CWPM) to measure reading intervention impact. While fluency integrates accuracy, automaticity, and prosody, the dominant measurement approach measures rate and accuracy within 1 minute, thereby privileging the need for speed. Many…

Jiménez, Jeremy D.; Lerch, Julia C. – Comparative Education Review, 2019
In the latter half of the twentieth century, school textbooks globally embraced growing emphases on the experiences and rights of diverse marginalized groups. Textbook discussions of diversity earlier in the century, however, have seldom been studied. We use descriptive statistics and regression to examine diversity foci in 978 textbooks from 93…

Schneider, Ben Ross; Estarellas, Pablo Cevallos; Bruns, Barbara – Comparative Education Review, 2019
Recent governments in Ecuador (2007-17) have achieved impressive improvements in education. Enrollments increased significantly, and Ecuador's learning gains on regional tests from 2006 to 2013 were among the largest in the region. Ecuador's recent PISA performance provides further confirmation of genuine progress in raising student learning. A…

Boyle, Helen N. – Comparative Education Review, 2019
This article examines "government-registered medersas" in Mali and suggests that their appeal and expansion are due to their unique and innovative integration of Western and Islamic educational epistemologies (not simply subjects). Registered medersas respond to parental demands for the early introduction of "secular"…

In this article we explore the question of why "guangbo ticao" has survived in an era of progressive educational reform in contemporary China. We use interviews with Chinese preschool teachers and…

Edwards, D. Brent, Jr.; Okitsu, Taeko; da Costa, Romina; Kitamura, Yuto – Comparative Education Review, 2018
In the field of global education policy, it is common for scholars to reflect on the progress made toward internationally agreed-upon agendas, such as Education for All (EFA). However, scant research has turned the gaze back on the major multilateral institutions that commit to taking the lead in meeting these agendas in order to ask, what…

Limerick, Nicholas – Comparative Education Review, 2018
Over the past century, missionary educators, nation-state and academic planners, and literacy development workers have used alphabets for political ends for traditionally marginalized languages, and Native peoples have contested such planning with other alphabet proposals. Yet literacy work now often overlooks that there are multiple alphabets…
