Advances in Education in Diverse Communities: Research, Policy and Praxis
The primary objective of Advances in Education in Diverse Communities: Research, Policy and Praxis is to present original research, policy formulations and praxis involving education and related social welfare issues in global contexts. This series distinguishes between the narrower institutional confines of schooling to the broader understanding of education to include multiple ways of learning, ways of knowing and ways of understanding in multiple settings and contexts, among diverse populations. Similarly, education is defined as a larger part of any society’s social welfare, social safety net. As such, companion and integrative issues such as poverty, power, race, public health, immigration, juvenile in/justice, inequality, homelessness, housing, un/employment, environmental concerns, ethnic and racial conflict, and a host of other social, political and economic variables play significant roles in providing, sustaining and furthering the educational advancement of any society in both the developed and developing worlds. In appreciation of these integrative issues, this series proudly publishes those volumes which highlight not only factors inside schools which advance or impede education, but solicits original research on those factors outside of schools whichadvance or retard education in multiple settings and contexts, locally, nationally or internationally.
