System performance uncovered: Why some education systems are better than others

By Alma Harris and Michelle Jones
Price: $25.91

The last decade has seen international interest in how and, most importantly, why certain education systems outperform others. The authors explore system performance by taking a comparative perspective. Professor Harris and Associate Professor Jones touch upon the current debate and look specifically at the global role that PISA plays in defining educational excellence and high performance. They then reflect upon ‘policy borrowing’ and the concomitant preoccupation with appropriating solutions to school reform from other systems.
