BISAC: EDU000000

This series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research. The field of education is consistently on the top of priority lists of every country in the world, yet few educators are aware of the progress elsewhere. Topics discussed include innovation in foundation courses and undergraduate research experiences; a conceptual analysis of dual credit programs; Texas community colleges and short-term occupational certificates; middle school size and student performance; gaps in college readiness; career and technical education research; behavioral consultation and developing support conditions for teachers; and the American theory of campuses as places for human learning.
