Excellence in education : perspectives on policy and practice by Philip G Altbach( Book )

6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current reform movement in education is investigated in this book through analysis of the many reports on the state of the nation's schools collectively called the excellence reports. Five areas of investigation are focused upon in this volume: (1) an overview of what the excellence reports say; (2) a consideration of the social, political, and economic content of the reports; (3) how reform in the 1980s will affect policies initiated in the 60s and 70s; (4) how reforms impact on curriculum, teacher preparation, and student success; and (5) the historical implications of past reform movements in education. Authors or co-authors of these essays, which reflect several educational perspectives, are Ernest L. Boyer, Michael W. Apple, Albert Shanker, Paul E. Peterson, Joel Spring, Sheila Slaughter, Richard C. Hunter, Carl A. Grant, Christine E. Sleeter, Rosemarie V. Rosen, Dennis Carlson, Linda M. McNeil, Hugh G. Petrie, Maxine S. Seller, and the editors. The final contribution to the book is a select bibliography on the excellence debates compiled by Kowsar P. Chowdhury and Philip G. Altbach. (Jd)
Women's education in the Third World : comparative perspectives by Gail Paradise Kelly( Book )

15 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on Third World countries, this book examines the undereducation of women, causes of women's undereducation, changes in female education patterns, and the significance of such changes in society and in women's lives. The book consists of four parts, comprising different chapters written by social scientists, researchers, and educators. Part one is concerned with factors that affect women's access to education and their survival rates in school (including ethnicity, social class, sex role division of labor in the family and society, educational policy, and school availability). Part two investigates how far schools encourage girls to succeed in academic life, whether schools prepare girls for society the way they do boys, whether sex differentiation in schooling varies across countries, and how sex differentiation in educational practices shapes schooling outcomes for girls. Parts three and four consider the outcomes of education for women in the labor force and for mothers, and address the questions of whether education enables women to mediate the impact of the family on their economic and social roles, and whether education substantively affects women's family lives. A concluding chapter explores new directions for research on the education of women. A bibliography of materials on women and schooling in the Third World is included. (Author/MJL)

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of a series of papers on comparative education, this report considers curriculum and student life under colonialism through an examination of school knowledge in French West Africa in the first decades of the twentieth century. The monograph is divided into three parts. Part one describes the educational system of interwar West Africa. It emphasizes school organization, admissions and matriculation policies, the composition of the teaching staff, curriculum, and student enrollment. Part two contains translations from interwar elementary and primary textbooks. Part three is composed of translations from students' class notebooks. Focus is on students' French compositions and, in some cases, teacher corrections. What the notebooks reveal about how students perceive themselves, their school, and their aspirations for themselves once they graduate is evaluated. (Lp)
Live lead learn : my stories of life and leadership by Gail Paradise Kelly( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gail Kelly's presence reaches far beyond her own profession. The first female CEO of one of Australia's big four banks, listed by Forbes in 2010 as the 8th most powerful woman in the world, and mother of four (including triplets), Gail is celebrated as one of our finest, most innovative thinkers on leadership and workplace culture.In these personal, practical chapters, Gail Kelly shares what she's learned over her remarkable career, drawing from her personal and professional life. As a leader, she argues passionately for the importance of putting people and customers at the heart of a business; of leading with courage and generosity of spirit; and of resilience. Some of those lessons were learnt at times of high pressure, and Gail takes us into her thinking as she led Westpac through the global financial crisis and the merger with St. George. But Gail's voice speaks to each of us, whatever our role in life. She explores the absolute importance of loving what you do; learning to learn; backing yourself; and most importantly, placing your family above all things. At the heart of Gail's refreshing, authentic, integrated approach is how both individuals and companies thrive when they openly address the meaning of what they do, and understand the need to live a whole life. Live, Lead, Learn is the inspiring story of one of the world's most prominent business people, who started as a Latin teacher and became mother of four and CEO of Westpac - and everything she has learned along the way
