In education, the idea of freedom, autonomy, and accountability are
commonly regarded as very important, but educational policy-makers
do not always pay sufficient attention to the tensions among them.
Thus, freedom or school autonomy may be sacrificed to
accountability, or accountability may be weakened in an effort to
provide a wider range of choices for parents, or to give more
decision-making authority to individual schools. In this volume,
the contributors are convinced that wise design and implementation
can produce a successful balance among freedom, autonomy, and
accountability, and that considering the approaches adopted by
different educational systems can contribute both to design and to
implementation. This four volume collection presents a worldwide
overview of the status of freedom, autonomy, and accountability in
education, with detailed information on 40 countries. The
collection is a useful reference manual for students, government
officials, educational lawyers, and policy-makers. Each volume can
be purchased separately (in cloth or paperback) or as a complete
four volume set (in paperback). ** Volume 1 provides an in-depth
