By effectively breaking through the boundaries between... countries and disciplines, it presents new theories, techniques and methods for contemporary education policy, and illustrates the educational policies and educational reform practices that various countries have introduced to meet the challenges of continuous change. Based on an analysis of the nature of education policy and education reform, this volume focuses on education reform and the concept of education quality. Adopting a historical and comparative perspective, it examines the dialectical relationship between education policy and education reform in various countries, assesses theoretical and practical issues in the process of moving from regulation to multiple governance in contemporary education administration, and explores the impact of globalization on national education reform and the interdependence between countries. In addition, it presents studies addressing educational policy research methodology from multiple perspectives. Highlighting the changes in national education macro policies, this volume comprehensively reveals the complex relationship between contemporary education reform and social change, and explores the links between contemporary social, political and economic systems and educational policy research and practice, offering a holistic portrait of macro trends in contemporary education reform.

              There is a daunting and alluring desire in contemporary social science for research to find the practical knowledge that enables one to live a good life in a just and equitable society. This desire haunts the 19th-century emergence of the social sciences and became more pronounce...d in the postwar mobilizations of research. Today the desire for this knowledge is captured in the structured assessments of national school systems and in the professional education pathways that inspire governments to modernize school systems and provide for people's well-being. American policy and research are thus linked by reforms that are verified as "scientific, empirical evidences" about "what works". The Impracticality of Practical Research explores the idea that practical and useful knowledge historically changes over time under the guises of educational reform, instructional improvement, and professionalisation. The study of science draws on a range of social and cultural theories and historical studies to understand the politics of science and scientific knowledge that are concerned with social and educational change. Can research change social conditions to make a better life, and make people's conduct embody the qualities and characteristics of that better life - the good citizen, parent, or worker? Thomas Popkewitz explores how the research to correct social wrongs paradoxically is entangled with the inscription of differences in its efforts to be inclusive.
