Christian Heritage College celebrates the recent publication of Quality Education.

Comprising 100 book chapters, Quality Education is Vol. 4 of the peer reviewed multivolume edited Encyclopedia of the UN Sustainable Development Goals—Transforming the World We Want, the largest editorial project on sustainable development ever undertaken, and the world’s most comprehensive publication on the United Nations SDGs. Comprising 17 volumes and 1,700 book chapters, the encyclopedia is part of Springer Nature’s award-winning World Sustainability Series.

Dr Johannes M. Luetz who chairs the CHC Research Committee was one of seven Associate Editors who worked on the book for three years, coordinating the peer review of different sections.
