about

Debating is out of fashion. No one raises the question of what has gone wrong when the entire political project of a society is seemingly reduced to 'education, education, education'.
The aim of this lively and challenging book is to provide the stimulus for further thinking about key educational issues by exposing and explaining the assumptions behind this obsession. Over forty contributors, all experts in their fields, have written short, accessible, informed and lively articles for students, teachers and others involved in education. They address broad questions that are central to any understanding of what is really going on in the education system.
Topics covered include: the new relationship of the state to education; the changed nature of schools; whether teachers are afraid to teach; the problems with circle time, anti-bullying strategies, citizenship education, and multiple intelligences; the retreat from truth and the demise of theory in teacher training, and much more.
Everyone learning to teach in primary and secondary schools and further education colleges will find this book relevant to their programmes. In particular the book would be useful for students on Education Studies courses.

Editorial Reviews

'I found the book enjoyable, thought-provoking and occasionally infuriating, the sort of text that will engage even the most reluctant apprentice reader. Each chapter has a bibliography that guides the new reader to relevant literature, helpful to students but also to lecturers not experts in the field¿a well organised and practical text that will support [] the large numbers of students studying education studies free from the intervention of the TTA and I would recommend all of them to buy it' - John Lee, British Journal of Educational Studies
