Carr-Hill, Roy – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
It has often been lamented that girls are more likely not to attend or to drop-out (for example, because of gender preference by the parents, insecurity, pregnancy, amongst many other postulated factors) or that their achievement even if they stay in school is worse than boys. For the former, UNESCO introduced the Gender Parity Index (GPI), which…

Forestier, Katherine; Adamson, Bob – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017

Beech, Jason; Rizvi, Fazal – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017
In this paper, we discuss some of the ways in which forces of globalisation have transformed the spaces in which educational policies are now developed and practices now enacted.

Epstein, Erwin H. – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017
More than any other historical figure, Marc-Antoine Jullien of Paris has been considered the "Father" of Comparative Education, and his "Esquisse d'un ouvrage sur l'éducation compare", appearing in 1816-17, has been viewed as that field's originating source. Yet, the view that Jullien is the first in his field, and that his…

Turner, David A. – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017
In his proposal for comparative education, Marc Antoinne Jullien de Paris argues that the comparative method offers a viable alternative to the experimental method.
