Content

Schools, unlike other commercial and industrial businesses, have learning as their central focus. This unit concentrates attention on the ways in which systematic educational processes, both internal and external, can be managed in ways that enhance the processes of teaching and learning in the context of international schools. The variety of International Schools is examined in terms of the educational needs of students in particular communities and the match or mismatch between educational needs and system provisions are considered. The various forms of support and legitimation of curriculum and assessment processes offered by various governmental, non-governmental, independent and transnational agencies is also considered as are the brokering arrangements between such schools and other educational institutions.
