With a revised structure, new chapters, and fully updated content, this second edition continues to introduce alternative visions of education theory and practice. The chapters are divided between three sections: Education Policy and Politics; Global and Environmental Education; and, Learning, Knowledge and the Curriculum. Coverage includes: Every Child Matters; gender and educational achievement; religious and cultural plurality in education; education for democracy and citizenship; the global dimension in education; education for sustainability; the ecology of learning; young children learning; the effective teacher; and, educational research. Each chapter contains introductions, summary points, questions for discussion, and annotated suggestions for further reading.
