Summary The question of quality has become one of the most important framing factors in education and has been of growing interest to international organisationsand national policymakers for decades. Politics of Quality in Education focuseson Brazil, China, and Russia, part of the so-called emerging nations? BRICSblock, and draws on a four-year project to develop a new theoretical andmethodological approach. The book builds a comparative, sociohistorical, and transnational understandingof political relations in education, with a particular focus on the policies andpractices of quality assurance and evaluation (QAE). Tracking QAE processesfrom international organisations to individual schools, contributors analyse howQAE changes the dynamics in the roles of state, expertise, and governance. Thebook demonstrates how national and sub-national actors play a central role inthe adaptation, modification, or rejection of transnational policies. Politics of Quality in Education will be of great interest to academics, researchers, and postgraduate students engaged in the study of comparative and internationaleducation, as well as educational policy and politics. It should also be essentialreading for practitioners and policymakers.
