Access to Higher Education : Theoretical Perspectives and Contemporary Challenges (Hardcover)
about this item
Who should participate in Higher Education? Who does actually participate, and how can we influence patterns of participation? Access to Higher Education rethinks traditional answers to these questions in the context of the global financial crisis, population changes and increasing social inequality. Focusing on theoretical and philosophical perspectives, this pioneering book will consider new voices and emerging perspectives in the field of access, as well as international examples of the application of theory to practice. International in scope, this is a rigorous text for those interested in social justice, the economics of education and social policy.
