Education Equality and Human Rights: Issues of Gender, 'Race', Sexuality, Disability and Social Class
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Education, Equality and Human Rights addresses the controversial and emotive issue of human rights and its relationship to education in the twenty-first century. Each of the five equality issues of gender, race, sexuality, disability and social class are covered as areas in their own right, and in relation to education. Written by experts in each particular field, the chapters trace the history of the various issues up to the present and enable readers to assess their continuing relevance in the future. With a new preface written by leading educationist Peter McLaren, the substantially updated second edition of this comprehensive book provides an important educational perspective on world-wide equality issues for teachers and student teachers at all stages.
