The Routledge Companion to Education

Abstract

The Routledge Companion to Education contains over forty chapters written by leading scholars covering all aspects of education. The volume is structured into six sections: a comparative view of education, conceptions of the teacher and the learner, knowledge for teaching and learning, learning across boundaries, diversity and equity, policy and governance. The Companion has a unique format, which is driven by principles of learning. Each section begins with an introduction from everyday experience, followed by an ‘advance organizer’ which alerts readers to the contents of that section and explains why the issues are important. A series of chapters follows, written by scholars who each take different critical stances on the issues and each section finishes with a commentary and a list of suggested additional reading. The book concludes by inviting the reader to reflect on changes in their thinking as a result of reading the text. The intention is to challenge preconceptions and promote a research orientation to problem solving in education. This Companion is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students in Education, Child Studies, Youth Studies, Psychology, Sociology and Social Policy.
