Series: Progress in Education
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. Many techniques, programs and methods are directly applicable across borders. Topics discussed herein include reading and math achievement differences as a function of early-exit and late-exit bilingual programs; school discipline and grade six Hispanic and white student academic performance; differences in first semester GPAs by ethnicity and gender within ethnicity as a function of dual credit enrollment; Texas charter middle schools; gender differences in taking advanced coursework in Texas; motivating Flemish senior teachers to work past the age of 60; international comparisons of student achievement; additive bilingualism of immigrant children.
