Regular issue on quality of education (Prospects #160)

The articles in this issue share an underlying focus on improving the quality of education in various ways and bring together research articles on various topics such as:  selective teacher attention and student achievement, girls’ performance in primary education, and links between higher education and the labour market.

The entire volume is punctuated by deep analysis which prompts an empathic responsiveness to the main ideas in all their variety. The articles underline the important role that education research can play in understanding, and sometimes alleviating and even solving, issues and conflicts, and advocate a stronger relationship between research, policy, and practice.

PROSPECTS is UNESCO-IBE's Quarterly Review of Comparative Education.
