Mark Bray, Chair Professor in the Faculty of Education, University of Hong Kong, joins the New Books Network to discuss his recently coedited book volume, entitled Researching Private Supplementary Tutoring: Methodological Lessons from Diverse Cultures (Comparative Education Research Centre and Springer, 2016).

Sometimes called private supplemental tutoring, shadow education, and many other monikers, this practice is actually a global phenomenon that impacts education in societies around the world. Perhaps often considered an issue mostly concentrated in East Asia, this book covers methodological lessons and issues when studying this kind of education throughout the world, from Jamaica to Iran to Cambodia.

The publication was coedited with Ora Kwo, associate professor in the Comparative Education Research Centre at the University of Hong Kong, and Boris Jokic, scientific associate in the Centre for Educational Research and Development at the Institute for Social Research in Zagreb, Croatia. Dr. Bray previously joined New Books Network to discuss Comparative Education Research Approaches and Methods.
