This introductory chapter sets out the purpose and scope of the book, arguing that education quality in the era of Education for All is inextricably entangled with issues of social justice. Many but not all, of the contributions to the book arise from a large-scale research programme on education quality in low income countries, known as EdQual. EdQual conducted school effectiveness and teacher research mainly in sub-Saharan Africa. The three parts of the book focus on (1) social justice frameworks for conceptualising and education quality; (2) planning and policies for education quality; and (3) school level interventions for quality improvement.
