How does educational freedom, in its various aspects, guide national policies? How do non-governmental schools deal with legal requirements for accountability, personnel policy, admissions criteria for pupils, curriculum and pedagogy? This book is the first of a two volume study which presents the first systematic account of how different systems throughout the world have sought to meet this challenge. Finding the Right Balance, Volume I will be of great interest to policymakers and specialists in educational law policy and administration.
