The book charts the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact that it has had on the lives of young people and their communities, education systems, the teaching profession, and the responses by governments, NGOs, and donor organisations in Pakistan. Drawing on theories of postcolonialism, feminism, and neo-liberal globalisation we explore the development of Pakistan as a postcolonial nation-state, and examine the legacies of colonialism in education systems and policies, teacher education and development. The Pakistani authors bring extensive knowledge and experience to this case study of the ‘broken promise’ of education for sustainable development. It will have significant policy and development impact in post COVID-19 Pakistan, South Asia more broadly, and in other postcolonial development contexts around the world as it develops a critique of the UN SDGs as a global and more local framework for development.

Teaching, born of the period of the ancient sages, developed as the moral art of living that introduced humanity to teaching as a moral pursuit, to the formation of value, to a moral and religious mode of being, and to a set of moral principles that have survived into the modern day. The idea that the ‘future of teaching’ represents a technological disruption of moral traditions of teaching and what teaching might become has become a serious concern for the current generation of philosophers in both China and the West.

How we think about civic participation has changed dramatically; how is civic education being transformed? Nations, globally, are redefining what is needed to be a ‘good citizen’ and how they should create them. ‘Civic’ participation increasingly extends beyond voting in elections, to informal and unconventional action. Making one’s voice heard involves diverse communication media and wide-ranging skills. Young people are motivated to engagement by concern about climate change and the rights of marginalised people. Social media empower but bring the threat of extremism. Civic education – New Civics – must channel and foster these trends. To create critical, active and responsible citizenship, knowledge alone is not enough; young people need to able to take critical perspectives on a wide range of social and political issues, and to acquire the social, cognitive and organizational skills to do so. How is new civics pedagogy being manifested? What traditional practices are under scrutiny? In this volume sixteen projects in eight countries address questions in research, practices, policy and professional development. What is civic identity and how does participation reflect it? Where do new discourses and definitions come from? How do contemporary social and cultural debates and issues intersect with practice and precepts?
This book offers a perspective from the Global South to analysing the Asian higher education ranking system. The narratives and major debates on world university rankings is examined and discussed to provide critical perspectives on the social implications of rankings for Asia. Specifically, the implications of the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) world university rankings are analysed to gain insights into the usefulness of reputation rankings in addressing social inequality. The analysis provides a blueprint for global politics in rankings to shape policies and the governance of higher education in Asia. 
The majority of South African principals believe that subject heads and Heads of Departments should be in charge of curriculum and teaching monitoring. Due to this impression, curricular management by principals does not support teaching and learning. According to the KZN department of education's study from 2015 on curriculum management and delivery plan, principals now spend more time on administrative responsibilities and learner discipline than on topics related to instructional leadership. This book emphasizes how major social and economic development in rural areas is necessary in order to achieve actual quality education. Until then, the educational options available in rural areas will restrict people's ability to live long, productive lives and to learn and experience freedom, dignity, and self-respect.

How does English language arts (ELA) education relate to power and privilege in education and in schools? How is ELA education situated historically and culturally, in terms of power and privilege? In what ways are learners, categorically and as individuals, situated as decision-makers in ELA education? Over 50 contributors from different perspectives answer these questions by focussing on a variety of topics and terminology broadly related to the teaching of English language arts and the socio-political-cultural context in which this teaching occurs.

This encyclopedia has particular relevance for preservice and practicing ELA teachers, teacher educators, and scholars.
