This book addresses three fundamental questions confronting contemporary education: What does Asia literacy schooling mean? Why is it important? How might or ought schools do Asia literacy? While many of the chapters in this collection draw on experiences in Australia, schools and schooling systems internationally face similar concerns. The growing impact of globalisation and transnational migration, as well as the geo-political and geo-economic influence of countries in Asia, has prompted political leaders, policy-makers, curriculum designers, school leaders, teachers and communities to look to schools as key sites for developing ‘Asia literate’ and ‘globally competent’ citizens who have the capacities and capabilities to live, work and interact in and with the peoples, cultures and societies of Asia.
