Higher education student attrition is a complicated and global problem. The scholarly literature indicates different reasons for student attrition. Among the reasons are; students’ perceptions of themselves, unpleasant experience in their learning environment, and the lack of support from their learning agencies. Likewise, most students experience cultural shock that results in isolation, lack of integration, lack of belonging, and hence dropout. The Author, Elizabeth, underlines guiding students to acquire contextual relational, academic, and societal culture as a sustainable measure to eliminate the student attrition problem. She has provided a cultural model that can support higher education students and other stakeholders to understand the cultural factors that each student MUST observe, evaluate, learn, and practice. The book is the first to guide higher education students on what to do in different situations and acquire the appropriate contextual culture. It is the mastering of culture which differentiates successful and unsuccessful students. The Author is an experienced teacher, school inspector, and advisor. She included her experiences as she was recently undertaking a Ph. D. She recognizes the differences between the western and non-western higher education learning cultures. Most higher education institutions are currently open to a multicultural learning environment, where students experience the western and non-western cultures. It is a fact that students who manage to practice the relevant contextual, cultural factors succeed in attaining the learning goals. YES, Information is Power.

The twenty-first century Reading War is, in fact, nothing new, but some of the details are unique to our current culture driven by social media. This volume seeks to examine the current Reading War in the context of the historical recurrence of public and political debates around student reading abilities and achievement. Grounded in a media fascination with the “science of reading” and fueled by a rise in advocates for students with dyslexia, the current Reading War has resulted in some deeply troubling reading policy, grade retention and intensive phonics programs. This primer for parents, policy makers, and people who care confronts some of the most compelling but misunderstood aspects of teaching reading in the U.S. while also offering a way toward ending the Reading War in order to serve all students, regardless of their needs.

This book describes and analyses the organisation, functions and development of national educational authorities and agencies and the influence they have on local schools in 20 countries around the world. It examines the governing chain in the respective countries from both a theoretical and descriptive perspective. It does so against the background of the stability and rigour of the governing chains having been challenged, with some researchers considering the chain to be broken. However, the view that comes to the fore in this book is that the chain is still present and contains both vertical implementation structures and intervening spaces for policy interpretation. How schools become successful is important for the individual students as well as the local community and the national state. A vast quantity of research has looked at what happens in schools and classrooms. At the same time, national governance and politics as well as local prerequisites are known to exert influence on schools and their results to a high degree. Societal priorities, problems and traditions provide variety in how governance is executed. This book provides an international overview of the similarities and differences between educational agencies and how their work influences schools.
