Starting Points

The World Education Encyclopedia: A Survey of Educational Systems Worldwide is a country-by-country survey of educational systems, including their histories and legal foundations. Although it's from 2002, it can provide a good historical picture of the creation and structure of educational systems around the world. The following links take you to each volume in the Internet Archive, where you can borrow them for an hour at a time with a free account.
