‘...this publication is an excellent and important contribution to the literature on partnership building, especially in the Commonwealth, at a time of accelerated globalisation. It provides much-needed information on each of the components of the global village, and draws attention to the challenges facing the regions and programmes in the Commonwealth.’ – International Review of Education, Volume 5, Issue 1, January 2009
Commonwealth Education Partnerships 2007 is the essential overview of education for development in the Commonwealth, focusing on both intra-Commonwealth collaboration as well as partnerships between member governments, civil society and the private sector. As the official publication for the 16th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers, held in Cape Town, the 2007 edition covers both the current trends in education and development and the main themes of the conference: access to quality education for the good of all; the right to primary, secondary and tertiary education; globalisation and its impact on both student/teacher migration and trade in educational services; as well as trends in education financing. The publication also includes:
Responses to the challenge of HIV/AIDS through education
Contributions of opens, distance and flexible learning to education and development
Supporting teachers in delivering quality education
Particular education issues that affect small states
Regional education perspectives
Education profiles of each member country
A directory of Commonwealth education and research contacts.
