View All Available Formats & Editions


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 in three comprehensive sections that challenge our assumptions by exploring a wide range of perspectives on education in different countries and cultures, by providing critiques of current policies and practice, and by analyzing learning and the nature of knowledge itself.
