'This book is to be commended for its accessible style and approach, and is a valuable resource for students in the early stages of their Education undergraduate programme.'

Charlotte Barrow, Senior Lecturer in Education, University of Central Lancashire

'Clearly set out, coherent and accessible for all students on Education Studies courses. It reflects accurately current issues and concerns in Education Studies. A valuable addition to the literature, with a focus on progressive ideas in education.'

Dr John Rees, Sheffield Hallam University

Exploring Education Studies is a rich and multi-layered investigation of the world of education. Built around four central themes - history and philosophy, psychology, current policy, and new perspectives in education - the author's lively discussions capture the essence of this diverse subject area.
