On the Purpose of Comparative Education

Properly done, comparative education can deepen understanding of our own education and society; it can be of assistance to policymakers and administrators; and it can form a most valuable part of the education of teachers.  Expressed another way, comparative education can help us understand better our own past, locate ourselves more exactly in the present, and discern a little more clearly what our educational future may be.

– Harold Noah, in “The Use and Abuse of Comparative Education”, 1984
