20 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multigrade teaching poses a challenge to learning. Millions of learners worldwide are taught by teachers who, at any one time, are responsible for two or more school grades/years. These are the invisible multigrade teachers who struggle to provide learning opportunities for all within curriculum and teacher education systems designed for monograded classes. In many countries multigraded classes arise out of necessity and are regarded as second class education. Yet in some parts of the world learning and teaching in multigraded settings is embraced as
Labouring to learn : towards a political economy of plantations, people, and education in Sri Lanka by Angela Little( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sri Lanka is hailed internationally for its high standards of education despite rather modest levels of economic growth. Historically, much of this achievement was underpinned by economic revenues generated by the labours of the plantation community whose own achievements in education fell well below the national norm. In recent years, however, educational participation among this community has increased, Why and How? A day in the life of Vickneswari, the daughter of labourers in a tea plantation, provides the starting point for an analysis of educational progress among the plantation Tamil plantation community of Sri Lanka. The analysis is embedded within historical, political, social and economic relations which stretch beyond the confines of the plantation in which Vickneswari live - within a plural society, in which the political interests of estate people have gradually become more central to the mainstream politics of Sri Lanka and within a national and global economy in which plantation production has become less central and less profitable over time

Globalisation, employment, and education in Sri Lanka : opportunity and division by Angela Little( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the late 1970s, Sri Lanka has undergone a socio-economic transformation, shifting from a protectionist stance towards economic liberalization and increasing integration into the world economy. Through a systematic comparison of these periods of economic change, 1956 - 1977 and 1977 to the present, Angela Little and Siri Hettige examine the impact of this transformation on education, youth employment and equality of opportunity in Sri Lanka. Over the period in question, this book charts Sri Lanka's shift from an agricultural economy to one dominated by services and manufacturing, a reduction in unemployment, rising educational and occupational expectations and achievements and a reduction in poverty. In turn, it reveals a growing role for the private sector and foreign interests in post-secondary education and a modest growth in private education at the primary and secondary levels, and widening social disparities in access to qualifications, training and skills. The Sri Lankan experience of, and engagement with, globalisation has been tempered by longstanding ethnic conflict that hindered both economic and social development and diverted public funds into defence and war. Now that the war is over the challenge is how to fulfil the expectations of youth belonging to all ethnic and social groups. This book is an important contribution to the broader international literature on the implications of globalisation for education policy and practice, and to the interaction of exogenous and endogenous forces for educational change. As such, it has a wide interdisciplinary appeal across education policy and politics, Asian education, South Asian society, youth policy, and globalisation"--
