Educational Issues in the Learning Age by Catherine Matheson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


How can education be used to encourage people to take their destiny into their own hands? How do those in power react? Is education really a quest for enlightenment or is it not rather a means of social control and institutionalized failure? What role does education play in the way I define myself culturally? What measures are used to decide how effective an education system is? This work, aimed at second- and third-year undergraduates, explores a wide range of educational issues and provides the reader with discussion of questions like those above. The authors also discuss such topics as education and training, reflective practice and governance. The book takes a multidisciplinary look at issues in education from sociological, philosophical and psychological perspectives.
