Although the world has nearly 80 states with populations below 1.5 million, only recently have the distinct features of education in such small states begun to attract discussion in the international literature. This is the first comprehensive,globally-focused book on the subject. The research first presents a conceptual framework, and identifies commonalities in the economies, societies and politics of small states. It then focuses on the goals of education, administration of small systems, and issues of curriculum, regional cooperation and foreign aid. This is then followed by case studies.
