about this item

Introduction to Education Studies has proven itself to be the key text for students of Education Studies for over a decade, leading readers through the field's key ideas, concepts and debates.

Drawing from the main educational themes of sociology, philosophy, history, psychology and policy, Bartlett and Burton introduce you to different ways of looking at education and the ideologies that shape educational systems. Tightly supported by accessible links to research literature and keenly aware of contemporary developments, this book encourages you to adopt a critical, questioning approach to your study in order to develop an engaged and informed understanding of education.

This new edition includes:

·         A range of video discussion boxes throughout the book and linked to the companion website exploring key issues related to each chapter

·         Enhanced coverage of special educational needs, discussing how policy has evolved historically and in more recent times throughout the New Labour and Coalition governments

·         New discussion of the 2014 National Curriculum in England and the political processes and ideologies underpinning it
