Book Description: This book contains poetry attributed to Omar Khayyaam (1048-1131), a popular Iranian poet whose philosophies provoke strong reactions from those who agree or disagree with his ideas. Khayyaamism is a particular worldview that challenges established religious beliefs and practices that are contrary to reason. These short poetic expressions promote the enjoyment of living in the moment and present death as both a natural part of life and the ultimate equalizer of the rich and the poor. The collection of poems presented in this book dare the readers to take a more critical view of the issues and values that continue to be discovered by each new generation and debated in our world. Along with each poem, there are conversation starters and questions that invite the reader to dig deeper into the exposed concepts.

Book Description: Public education has expanded to serve large populations across the regions of Africa, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. Many nations in these regions are moving into a phase of public education in which a variety of factors are being identified as influencing the quality of public education and its ability to serve all children and adolescents. It has become evident that ethnic background, gender, religious affiliation, and ability/disability are important factors in who is served and how well the individual is served. The chapters in this volume, Book 8, of Research on Education in Africa, the Caribbean, and the Middle East document and describe the status, success, and limitations of public education’s efforts at transformation. They provide points from which further research and practice might occur.
