Key Issues in Education and Social Justice, 2nd Edition
Education Studies: Key Issues Series
This text introduces issues in fairness, inequality, and social justice in education, with a focus on the UK and England. It describes key conceptual and policy perspectives on issues of fairness, inequality, and social justice; the nature of inequalities in wider society, with a focus on those in areas like income and health; child poverty and how it is understood and measured in industrialized nations; educational inequalities as they apply to schools and students, including student outcomes, accountability, choice, and diversity; how students experience social justice inside and outside the classroom, particularly those with special educational needs and disabilities; and inequality in post-compulsory education and training. This edition has more on social inequalities in relation to income and wealth; new chapters on childhood inequalities, international issues in education and social justice, and education inequalities in the US; and more on how young people experience social justice and the experiences of young offenders. Other chapters have been updated to reflect recent developments, including new tables and figures. (Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
