Attending Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) 2019 Conference: Education for Sustainability

14–18 April 2019   |   San Francisco, United States





The aim of the conference was to discuss the longer-term cost of an education that promises productivity, industrialization, modernity, and consumption. The host, CIES, is a society that seeks to contribute to an understanding of education through the encouragement and promotion of comparative education and related areas of inquiry and activity.


Prof. Esther S. C. Ho, a GCR member, engaged in the conference as both a panel chair and as a participant in a poster presentation. She chaired the panel session “Understanding the Quality and Equality of Education in Chinese Societies” and provided insights from PISA. She also presented a poster entitled “Educational Expectation from Adolescence to Young Adulthood: A Latent Growth Modelling Analysis”.
