Written specifically for education studies students, this accessible text offers a clear introduction to sociology of education. It skilfully guides readers through this complex and sometimes challenging area using examples and accounts of sociological research to help them to understand the bigger theories and policies behind what are sometimes taken for granted systems of education.

Divided into two parts, the book examines each phase of education through a sociological lens. It then explores a range of cross-cutting themes which are at the very forefront of sociological concerns including social justice, globalisation, technology and the role of the market within educational provision.

Features include

  • individual tasks and group activities to promote discussion
  • case studies
  • notes boxes to highlight further reading;
  • chapter overviews and summaries

Part of the Foundations in Education Studies series, this timely textbook is essential reading for students coming to the study of sociology of education for the first time.
