recommended as essential starting point for students sidestepping into educational research, especially following the green paper 2015
Similar to another text I reviewed, this will be useful for a smaller group of my students who are re-routing their area of interest from equine and animal sciences towards education. Very topical following the green paper, and very current still.
This would be recommended for foundation degree learners. Linksinto one unit of work in relation to level 3 childcare course.
Excellent coverage of the key issues in social justice.
Smith's work is highly recommended for undergraduates with an interest in education and social justice. Smith offers the reader additional resources and readings and insightful reflection points which will aid the understanding of this topic.
Written with passion. Very accessible and valuable for M level study and beyond.
A good introductory text for students who need extra support with getting into the area of social justice.
A somewhat interesting text but very general.
This is an informative and easy-to-read discourse on a wide range of issues. It provides an overview of the key issues for students, providing a starting point for further research.
This text identifies key areas of social justice. It is a good introduction for our education students.
The graphs on social inequalities are particularly helpful to promote classroom discussion
This book has helped the students become aware of the issues that surround education. It is an excellent introduction for students embarking on their training in teacher education.
This book provides a sound basis when considering education alongside social justice. It is useful to anyone undertaking education studies at an undergraduate level, particularly those with a sociological focus.
This is a really excellent book that puts the issue of social justice at the centre of the study of educational issues. It is well written and easy to read, drawing on relevant data throughout. We have enthusiatically adopted it as a core text for our first year undergraduate module: "Education and Society".
A highly engaging text, which considers issues relating to education and justice in an thought provoking way. It is academically under-pinned extremely well, and highlights the realities and challenges of social justice in practice. A text I have strongly recommended to post-gradutes following the MA Education.
An interesting discussion of social justice issues such as poverty, impact and interventions used.This is an interesting book to read when connected with the optional unit of workign with special needs.
I love this book! It is so accessible to the complete beginner as first steps on the road to understanding the concept of social justice and its multi-faceted layers. It fits in very well with our modules on inclusion matters and an inclusive society as it covers som of the same areas as we do, e.g. Thatcher's 'no society' to Cameron's 'Big Society', inclusive education, inequality, poverty, NEETs, etc. I like the little case studies; they will be very useful for group discussion.
Highly readable, well structured and essential reading for all students of education.
It's a useful book, but (as in most cases) very Anglo-centric. For instance, the chapter on 'Social justice and special educational needs' uses English policy only, with no recognition of systems in the devolved countries of the UK. Having said that, I like the comprehensive coverage of important issues, and the book is written in a clear and accessible style.
