Education and the Law: International Perspectives

Synopsis

Education and the Lawexamines the way legislation affects education and educational training both directly and tangentially, and how the law, through its influence on such things as participation rates, certification and employer involvement, can affect the level and degree of economic activity. Contributors examine the education systems of the US, Kenya, Japan, Germany, Nigeria, Britain and France to illustrate the interdependence of the elements involved. Later chapters focus on the concept of curriculum control, taking a comparative approach to what is taught in the classroom and how the implementation of legislation affects all aspects of a country's education system.
