Inequality in Education: Comparative and International Perspectives is a compilation of conceptual chapters and national case studies that includes a series of methods for measuring education inequalities. The book provides up-to-date scholarly research on global trends in the distribution of formal schooling in national populations. It also offers a strategic comparative and international education policy statement on recent shifts in education inequality, and new approaches to explore, develop and improve comparative education and policy research globally. Contributing authors examine how education as a process interacts with government finance policy to form patterns of access to education services. In addition to case perspectives from 18 countries across six geographic regions, the volume includes six conceptual chapters on topics that influence education inequality, such as gender, disability, language and economics, and a summary chapter that presents new evidence on the pernicious consequences of inequality in the distribution of education. The book offers (1) a better and more holistic understanding of ways to measure education inequalities; and (2) strategies for facing the challenge of inequality in education in the processes of policy formation, planning and implementation at the local, regional, national and global levels.

What is the difference between a 'coach' and a 'mentor'? How can practitioner's and clients assess their benefits if there is little or no general understanding as to their meaning? This book offers answers by describing the different theoretical models available for coaching and mentoring and by looking at how these models are applied in practice. Robust theory is backed up by practical advice. Numerous practical exercises, case studies, templates - including a Training Workshop template - learning partner handouts and a questionnaire for selecting prospective mentors are included. Advice is also included on sensitive areas such as the boundary between mentoring or coaching and therapy, and the desirability of supervision and codes of practice.
