This publication provides an insight to the origins and characteristics of
international schools, curriculum and assessment, students and teaching staff,
and the management, leadership and governance of these schools. It also
discusses how international schools (usually private and fee-paying) might
develop in the future against a backdrop of growing forces of globalization and
other international influences. in all cases, attention is drawn to the
implications of the issues discussed for both policy-makers and planners in
national and international contexts.
