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.

'The transformational power of music education is illuminating throughout every page of this remarkable book. The authors vividly illuminate its wide-ranging position in society, constantly challenging the reader with new insights that relate to both the art and science of music-making. In a society that increasingly values sivual stimulus and instant gratification, music can sometimes seem peripheral and a littler more than ornamental. In reality it has the capability to change lives, an inspirational message communicated here with passion and conviction. A virtuoso and aspirational achievement!'-Professor Colin Lawson, Director, Royal College of Music, London, UK The landscape of music education in the UK is constantly shifting and developing. This book provides a timely and unique overview of this restless sector by considering the achievements of music education, analysing its current performance and setting out aspirations for the future. Music Education in the 21st Century in the United Kingdom addresses the power of music to influence and change human behaviour, analyses current and future issues in music education and casts a spotlight on particular areas of education, including early years, the primary school, the secondary school, further education, universities and conservatoires, music services, the music studio and the role of music leaders and community musicians. Written by experts in the field of music education, the book provides an authoritative account of the current status of music education in the UK. While essential to understand the current and future context in the UK, the book will be invaluable to those involved in music education internationally, as it includes chapters on the provision of music education for all children, listening, the role of singing, playing an instrument, creativity, the role of technology, issues of performance and assessment, learning through the lifespan and the initial and ongoing training of music teachers. It also includes a range of case study examples and evaluations of practice. The book is a landmark publication in the field of music education and will be essential reading for policy-makers, practitioners, music students, trainee music teachers and those who provide music services in the UK and internationally. 'As a reader from abroad, I found this collection to be a major achievement for music education in the United Kingdom. The United States and its music education leadership have much to learn from the chapters in this book. It shows not only how our two cultures struggle with the same fascinating challenges for music teaching and learning but also how we can be inspired to work for reform. Books like this are vital for all interested in the future of music education here and around the world.'-Peter R. Webster, John W. Beattie Professor of Music Education and Technology, Henry and Leigh Bienen School of Music, Northwestern University, USA

They synthesize macrosociology with educational research, which provides readers with the background, core knowledge, and global focus that is needed to understand international issues, as well as deal with diversity in the classroom. Global Issues in Education also addresses the need for additional research that makes the connections between the geopolitical economy and education, and it does this with a focus on the link to culture, ethnicity, and education.
