Education, Globalization, and Social Change

Hugh Lauder (Editor), Phillip Brown (Editor), Jo Anne Dillabough (Editor), A H Halsey (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Education is seen as central to economic competitiveness, the reduction of poverty and inequality, and environmental sustainability. The editors have selected key writings that examine the social and economic limits- and possibilities of-education in addressing these fundamental problems. This new reader establishes the field of sociology of education with a particular focus on papers that analyse the nature and extent of globalization in education. A general introduction presents the key concepts in the sociology of education, and outlines the major theories and debates, especially in relation to globalization. Each section is accompanied by a part opener explaining and contextualizing the readings within a larger educational and sociological context.
