Education has significant and far-reaching effects not only on individuals, but also on the societies in which they live and to which they contribute. The education level of a population affects how a country supports itself and others and the degree to which it can participate in the global field. While everyone from politicians to policymakers to celebrities has stressed the importance of education, there has not been-until now-a vigorous yet comprehensible examination of data to support what has long been common knowledge: education matters. In Education Matters: Global Gains from the 19th to the 21st Century, renowned economists Robert Barro and Jong-Wha Lee present a revolutionary new data set on education in 146 countries since 1870 and projected through 2040. With case studies from the United States, China, and Korea, Barro and Lee evaluate schooling both quantitatively and qualitatively and assess the role of education in political development. The book also addresses sensitive and controversial topics, such as international disparities in education and the role of education in modernization and development. Both challenging and enlightening,Education Matters has exciting implications for the future of education and promises to be a ground-breaking work in the fields of economics and educational attainment. In this comprehensive study, Barro and Lee establish the critical role that education plays - particularly for women and girls - in economic growth, fertility, and democracy. Engaging and informative,Education Matters is a compelling read for students, scholars, and anyone with a passion for education.

Based on a major international teacher education research project—the Mathematics Teaching in the 21st Century Study (MT21)—this book investigates the preservice preparation of middle school mathematics teachers in the United States, South Korea, Taiwan, Germany, Bulgaria, and Mexico. The study was funded by the National Science Foundation and the participating countries. William Schmidt (co-author of the influential TIMSS study on student test results in science and math) and Maria Teresa Tatto (director of the Teacher Education and Development study, or TEDS-M) led a collaborative team of international researchers in this study. Using the results of more than 2,500 surveys, the authors examine the differential contribution of the six countries’ teacher-education models to the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of their future mathematics teachers. Case studies and detailed analyses of the teacher education curriculum across the participating countries provide rich contextual information to explain the survey findings. This study is the first to examine the resource allocation and economic support in teacher education vis-à-vis other mathematics-related professions, and it shows that differential investment patterns are consistent with the level of teaching knowledge found in each country’s new teachers. The book includes a chapter on policy implications, with a special focus on teacher preparation in the United States.

Why send your child to a Christian school? Isn't any school good enough? John D. Roth says no; in a readable fashion, he frames key questions regarding the future of Christian education and makes the case for Christian schools, offering clear directions while inviting dialogue and alternative perspectives. Along the way, Roth provides a theological foundation for education from a distinctly Anabaptist-Mennonite perspective, offering a useful framework for on-going conversations about the appropriate nurture of children and young adults, pedagogical practices and goals, and future directions of Mennonite education from pre-kindergarten to seminary. "Teaching that Transforms is not intended to end the discussion, but to provide a framework for an open, lively, vigorous and honest conversation about the nature of our Christian witness to the world and our assumptions about the future of the church." --John D. Roth Free downloadable study guide available here. Endorsements "This book will do for Anabaptists what Jean Leclercq's The Love of Learning and the Desire for God did for Christian educators throughout the world. It will make you want to be a lifelong learner and a better Christian, teacher, parent, and student. An excellent book for faculty retreats, Sunday school classes, and classes in Anabaptisthistory and education. Let the conversations begin!" --Shirley Hershey Showalter, former president of Goshen College "John Roth gives valuable background on the historical and contemporary contexts of Mennonite initiatives in education, and introduces issues that need attention in Anabaptist-Mennonite education contexts. He makes the case for education that is distinctive, 'education with a difference.'" --Albert J. Meyer, Mennonite Board of Education (ret.); author of Realizing Our Intentions: A Guide for Churches and Colleges with Distinctive Missions "With the passion of a parent and the heart of a churchman, Roth builds a compelling case for Anabaptist-Mennonite education. Neither smug nor apologetic, he shows how deep roots in this stream of church renewal will bear fruit for the gospel as our children learn to witness and serve in the world." --J. Nelson Kraybill, lead pastor at Prairie Street Mennonite Church and president emeritus of Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary "If you anticipate a boring discussion on an abstract topic, you are in for a pleasant surprise. This book is infused with life and energy from Roth's conviction that Mennonite schools 'will be shaped by a Christ-centered way of reading Scripture, a Christ-centered understanding of relationships with other people, and a Christ-centered view of the church as the visible form of the resurrected Jesus in the world today.'" --Ervin Stutzman, Executive Director, Mennonite Church USA
