Since the World Conference on Education for All (EFA) in Jomtien,
Thailand in 1990, the push for modern mass schooling has become a
primary focus of national education policymakers and researchers
around the world. The EFA declaration that grew out of this
conference served as a culmination of a century-long movement to
transform existing national educational systems into the most
comprehensive mass system of schooling ever devised. Comparative
education researchers have been studying both the promises and the
challenges surrounding EFA for decades, but in comparative
education research literature there is still neither consensus on
the impact that EFA has nor clearly identified global trends in
either EFA policymaking or policy implementation. It seems that for
every promise that EFA brings, there is an accompanying challenge.
It is this struggle between the global promises and the national
challenges that this volume of International Perspectives on
Education and Society seeks to identify and explain. Chapters range
from critical syntheses of EFA policymaking or policy
implementation to original comparative education research on the
impact that EFA has had in specific nations or across clusters of
