Product Description

Review

'Highly readable and comprehensive introduction to education studies'
- Robert Legg, Senior Lecturer, Westminster Institute of Education at Oxford Brookes University


'The authors have provided an essential companion to studies in Education. Importantly, it reinforces the neccessity of a multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding of contested educational ideas and practices in a contemporary context'
- Dave Trotman, Newman University College


Praise for the second edition:

`The authors have provided an important resource for student study in education. Importantly, it reinforces the necessity of a multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding of contested educational process and practices in a contemporary context'
- Dave Trotman, Escalate


'This is a good introductory text book which introduces students to essential concepts they will encounter in the study of education. Throughout, the book has useful sections for reflecting on learning'
- Dr Claire Tupling, Department of Childhood Studies, Canterbury Christ Church University



In my opinion, the strengths of this text are many. First, it is very readable; the tone is engaging and encourages the reader to work through the whole text. Secondly, the fact that a companion website has been created to support the books is of particular significance. The third strength is the inclusion of reader reflexion boxes, containing questions or topics for consideration.  Finally, a recommended reading list at the end of each chapter, identifying relevant additional reading on each of the topics, provides the student with a complete ‘learning package’. (Moira Bailey Scottish Educational Review 2013-11-08)

An important text for those undertaking studies in education. Some good food for thought to help add meat to the bones.

On my core reading list. Very worthwhile read that I'll probably come back to in years to come which justifies investing in a copy and not waiting for a library copy. Particularly enjoy the philosophy of education debate, which is offers critical but fair review of some of Gove's more recent changes.
