Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Well organized and filled with recent data and significant educational research. Users will be struck by the inclusion of many educational terms and issues such as hyperactivity, multicultural education, and readiness that are familiar to those used in the United States. Education professors and administrators needing information on specific British government-sponsored reports and legislation from 1861 to the present will find the chronological list in section 4 especially helpful." Kathleen W. Craver, ARBA
