Book description

Continuing its calling to define the field and where it is going, the Second Edition of this landmark handbook brings up to date its comprehensive reportage of scholarly developments and school curriculum initiatives worldwide, providing a panoramic view of the state of curriculum studies globally. Its international scope and currency and range of research and theory reflect and contribute significantly to the ongoing internationalization of curriculum studies and its growth as a field worldwide.

Changes in the Second Edition:

  • Five new or updated introductory chapters pose transnational challenges to key questions curriculum research addresses locally.
  • Countries absent in the First Edition are represented: Chile, Colombia, Cypress, Ethiopia, Germany, Iran, Luxembourg, Nigeria, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, and Switzerland.
  • 39 new or updated chapters on curriculum research in 34 countries highlight curriculum research that is not widely known in North America.

This handbook is an indispensable resource for prospective and practicing teachers, for curriculum studies scholars, and for education students around the world.
