Abstract

The field of Comparative Education has received a series of scholarly contributions with regard to methods of comparative analysis. A wide range of comparative methodologies has consequently evolved. These methodologies are essentially alike in terms of the overall goal of their exponents vis-improving educational systems across the globe. Nevertheless, subtle and sometimes vast differences could be observed in these approaches. This paper is an attempt to compare and contrast the approaches to comparative studies propounded by Isaac Kandel and Brian Holmes respectively while highlighting their merits and demerits. Both comparativists were selected basically because their approaches represent two distinct eras in the development of comparative methodologies in education and so are much more significantly wide apart.
