Education in the United Kingdom is a comprehensive critical reference guide to education in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, The Isle of Man, The Channel Islands, Gibraltar, The Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Anguilla and The British Overseas Territories. Although generically similar in education structures, the various components of the United Kingdom have separate systems, with some very distinctive differences. The chapters, written by regional experts, offer a review of contemporary national and regional educational structures and policies, research innovation and trends. Some of the themes covered include issues relating to the partition of Ireland, differences between maintained and independent schooling, language issues and radical alternatives in teacher education. Including a comparative introduction to the issues facing education in the region as a whole and guides to available online datasets, this book is an essential reference for researchers, scholars, international agencies and policy-makers.

Education in the United Kingdom provides an authoritative account of the great variety of educational provision that exists in the various countries, dependencies, and territories that make up the United Kingdom. Its design and sensitive treatment of the complex nature of a range of different educational systems make it a unique resource for scholars, students, policy makers, and administrators. * D. G. Mulcahy, CSU Professor, Central Connecticut State University, USA *
Colin Brock is probably the most prolific writer and editor of work on comparative and international education in the world. In this volume he uses his international contacts to very good effect. Therefore, this volume in the overall series must be a key reference point for all who are engaged in comparative and international education. * Richard Pring, Emeritus Professor at the Department of Education, and Emeritus Fellow of Green Templeton College, University of Oxford, UK *
Timely, perceptive and wide ranging essays on education provision in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and UK overseas territories, by authors with relevant first hand knowledge and experience. Invaluable. * Sir William Taylor, Visiting Professor, University of Winchester, UK *
