`Education Studies: Essential Issues' is a book similar in style to the editor's first volume 'Introduction to Education Studies', both books introducing a variety of broad educational issues while analyzing certain areas in greater depth. Whereas the first book dealt with wider perspectives on education (i.e. research, politics and policy, psychological theory), this book deals with more specific issues with chapters viewing education through early years and compulsory schooling to post-compulsory and higher education, through to lifelong learning. Ultimately this book is quite unique due to the collection of chapters and is a worthy addition to any university bookshelf or as a key text for mandatory education modules' - Scott Buckler, University of Worcester, for Escalate
`This book is essential reading for all those concerned about education, especially for those working within the education system' - International Journal of Educational Management
`[Education Studies] is an informed and informative introduction. Teachers as well as student teachers will find it stimulating and valuable. Topics it covers well include teacher management and teacher professionalism' - Michael Duffy, Times Educational Supplement
This key text provides an overview of current theoretical issues, areas of study and major themes that are covered in education studies programmes. Chapters include:
- early childhood
- special needs
- citizenship and education
- lifelong learning
- post-compulsory education
- higher education
- management and professionalism in teaching
- education and economic development.
Prominent contributors in each field provide students with a solid grounding in the areas they will be studying and point the way to further successful study.
