Written specifically for students on Education Studies degree courses, yet also relevant for students on teacher training courses, Education Studies: A Student's Guide introduces a wide range of topics and issues, from knowledge and learning, and policy and schooling to the ways in which education is a force for change across the globe.
The book is split into three comprehensive sections which challenge our assumptions about education. It explores a wide range of perspectives on education in different countries and cultures, provides critiques of current policies and practice and analyzes learning and the nature of knowledge itself. Specific topics covered include:

  • the global dimension in the curriculum
  • cultural and religious plurality in education
  • the effective teacher
  • gender and educational achievement
  • special educational needs and inclusion in mainstream schools
  • ICT and learning for the future
  • language, power and education.

With chapter summaries, questions for discussion and reflection and suggestions for further reading, Education Studies: A Student's Guide will be a valuable resource for all students of Education Studies as well as BEd and PGCE students.
