This groundbreaking volume considers whether the question of the high school's seeming demise is exaggerated and why it is experiencing the many problems that it does. Essays focus on the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
Gary McCulloch is Brian Simon Professor of Education at the Institute of Education, University of London, UK.
