Abstract:

"This text provides a brief, yet comprehensive, overview of a number of non-Western approaches to educational thought and practice. Its premise is that understanding the ways in which other peoples education their children -- as well as what counts for them as "education" -- may help us think more clearly about some of our own assumptions and values, and become more open to alternative viewpoints about important educational matters. The value of this informative, mind-opening text for pre-service and in-service teacher education courses is enhanced by "Questions for Discussion and Reflection" and "Recommended for Further readings" included in each chapter."--p. 4 of cover.
