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.

Caride, Ezequiel Gomez – Comparative Education Review, 2018
This article describes how different approaches to religion (institutional and cultural) lead to startlingly different conclusions when analyzing how religion shapes the republican citizen. Through a genealogical discourse analysis, I examine educational reports issued by Argentinean authorities in the early twentieth century that made the Jew out…

Liu, Ye – Comparative Education Review, 2018
This article extends Boudon's positional theory to ascertain how students from different social backgrounds estimate their academic performance and how they translate their choices into the final destinations in higher education in the context of contemporary China. I draw upon empirical evidence from a firsthand survey study involving 2,425…

Schaub, Maryellen; Henck, Adrienne; Baker, David P. – Comparative Education Review, 2017
Current global conceptions of childhood dictate that all children are entitled to a childhood that provides protection, preparation, and child development for the whole child.

Ross, Karen – Comparative Education Review, 2017
In this article, I argue for the importance of conducting comparative studies of educational interventions implemented within the same sociopolitical environment. Taking into account both arguments for comparative research in education and recent calls for context-rich vertical case studies, I suggest that horizontal comparisons in a single…

Growing evidence of the prevalence of school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) has raised concerns about negative effects on education. Previous quantitative research on this topic has been limited by descriptive and cross-sectional data.

Huang, Min-Hsiung – Comparative Education Review, 2017
As Taiwanese students progress from elementary to junior high school, there is a remarkable increase in the inequality of achievement in mathematics.

The return of religion and religiosity, on almost all social, cultural, and political fronts, has informed the academic agenda of the last decade.

Kondratjeva, Olga; Gorbunova, Elena V.; Hawley, Joshua D. – Comparative Education Review, 2017
Student attrition in postsecondary education is a significant public policy problem. Nations invest substantial resources in college systems, and when students leave, this investment is lost. To understand the factors that influence student attrition in US and Russian public universities, we use the perspective of academic momentum, defined…

Hartong, Sigrid; Nikolai, Rita – Comparative Education Review, 2017
This article contributes to a growing body of research on global policy transfer and flows in education, arguing that a large number of such research has too often viewed nation-states as uniform policy containers, focusing mainly on national-level policy changes or using binary understandings of reform adaptation versus reform resistance.…
