Sociology of Education

Tomas Boronski,

Sociology of Education
 
 

‘An essential student-friendly text for Education Studies.’

Dr Gillian Forrester, Subject Head for Education & Early Childhood Studies, Liverpool John Moores University

 

‘Introducing students to the complexities of Education Studies is a difficult task and this book will go a long way to making it easier. I will definitely be recommending this to all my students.’

Kevin Brain, Programme Leader, Education Studies, Leeds Trinity University

 

This textbook explains the basic principles of sociology and relates these concepts to today’s society and education system in order to deepen your understanding of how these issues affect our lives and the world we live in, encouraging you to think critically and to develop a ‘sociological imagination’.

 

Coverage includes:

  • the wider political and economic context for education in the UK, including an analysis of the reforms of the 2010 coalition government
  • childhood, schooling and pupil voice
  • non-traditional consideration of critical pedagogy, ‘race’ and gender
  • the role of education in a multicultural society
  • inequalities in educational opportunity in terms of class, ethnicity and disability.

 

This is essential reading for students on undergraduate Education Studies degrees, and for sociology courses covering educational issues.
