Several years ago while driving through Scotland, I saw boys and girls neatly dressed in their school uniforms with book-bags over their shoulders, obviously on their way to school. The thought occurred to me that it would be very interesting to know how children in other parts of the world were being taught. This year when my husband was invited to direct an alumni world tour during the spring term, I decided this was the chance of a lifetime to incorporate into the trip a study in comparative education.
