In this chapter, some well-known education academics bring comparisons with their home settings of Australia, England and the USA, respectively. Apart from their academic expertise, they have all been visiting academics in New Zealand over the last few years and are well positioned to comment. Prof. Bob Lingard from the University of Queensland, Australia, provides ‘An Australian, global and policy perspective’. Prof Meg Maguire of King’s College London provides ‘An English perspective’. Finally, Prof. David Hursh, University of Rochester, New York writes about ‘People or Data? Lessons from New Zealand’.
