Introduction to Education Studies
'Highly readable and comprehensive introduction to education studies.' - Robert Legg, Senior Lecturer, Westminster Institute of Education at Oxford Brookes University
Education Studies is a broad, multi-disciplinary and rapidly growing field. Introduction to Education Studies has proven itself to be the key text for students of the subject for over a decade, leading readers through the field's key strands, concepts and applications without assuming any prior knowledge.
Bartlett and Burton provide first-time students and those engaged in more advanced aspects of the subject with all the tools that they need to approach Education Studies and also encourage a critical, questioning approach which will put them in good stead for further study and professional practice.
The new edition includes:
- A new chapter on globalisation and international comparative education
- A new companion website featuring online journal articles relating to each chapter
- More guidance on how to critique research
- More 'Reader Reflection' boxes, encouraging students to reflect on their own practice throughout
- A new framework for analysing policy
- New sections within the curriculum and the history of schooling chapters reflecting the latest UK developments
