'This is an engaging and accessible resource which explains various sociological, philosophical and psychological concepts relevant to contemporary educational practice. The concepts are succinctly and sometimes provocatively defined and related to today's pressing issues. It will be a particularly useful reference tool for students and practitioners of education alike, with each entry including references for further reading' - Geoff Whitty, Director, Institute of Education, University of London


'If you are seeking a clear guide to principles which should guide public life in general and education in particular, look no further. Inglis and Aers write with enviable and compelling clarity. Something for all in education especially practitioners and policy makers to read and return to' - Tim Brighouse, recently Chief Adviser for London Schools and formerly Chief Education Officer for Birmingham


This text provides students with over 100 essential themes, topics and expressions that Education students are likely to encounter, both during their courses and beyond in professional practice.


Co-authored to draw on experiences of working within academia, local authorities and the classroom, the entries provide:


- a definition of the concept


- a description of the historical and practical context


- an explanation of how the concept is applied


- an evaluation of the concept


- helpful references and suggested further reading
