Исследование по сравнительному образованию. Подходы и методы. 2-е изд.
This collective monograph presents the views of researchers and experts in the field of education and law on the issues of multilevel governance of education. Researchers and practitioners reflect on which principles the system of education should be built, which public institutions influence it, and what consequences the transfer of authority between different levels of government brings. Russian authors consider the results of recent reforms of redistribution of powers in the sphere of education, the impact of such redistribution on individual issues in the sphere as well as specific regional cases of redistribution of powers and cooperation. The monograph is supplemented by analytical annexes, which represent how different powers are redistributed in the sphere of education in Russia.
The monograph is intended for those engaged in educational research, especially in comparative regional studies, and for experts in the field of public administration, constitutional, administrative and municipal law.
This article presents a study of desired leadership behavior in the educational sector in Iceland. This sector has been undergoing major challenges during recent years, including restructuring and mergers of schools, strikes of teachers’ professional unions, and increasing dropout rates. This situation requires exceptional leadership together with the understanding that leadership is a culture and context contingent phenomenon. However, research on managerial leadership in the education sector in Iceland is virtually nonexistent, presenting a gap in literature as well as failure to contribute to solving issues in practice. This article contributes to closing this gap by investigating the desired leader profile from a follower-centric perspective. The results indicate that the most desired leader behaviors in this sector tend to be relationship orientated, suggesting a need to focus on the “soft” side of leadership and reconsider overemphasis on bureaucracy. Effects of gender and demographic differences are minimal, suggesting coherence with structural theory. Managerial leadership implications and future research directions are discussed.
The article analyzes early (16-17th c.) German printed primers and textbooks to find out who were their supposed users. The authors of these textbooks - mostly Protestant teachers - simetimes specified in the titles, prefaces, and the main text whom they imagined as their audience. This might include their colleagues as well as students (children as well as adults), and people who wanted to learn to read on their own. Knowing the biographies of some of the authors and the attitude of Martin Luther and other Church reformers to literacy, we can conclude that the most likely primer users were Lutherans. Based of the language it can further be assumed that the audience were High German rather than Low German speakers.
