Synopsis

A contemporary snapshot of Irish education, this book positions 21st-century Irish education at the centre of the creation of the knowledge economy. Divided into three parts, it outlines the challenges and changes presented as a result of a changing education system and society.









The book is divided into three parts, each dedicated to a specific theme:

* Considers education's role in building a knowledge economy and social cohesion





Part two: Diversity & Inclusion in Schools





* Analyses the changes in Irish schools based on the results of original research on change, diversity, inclusion and on ethnicity, disability and social class disadvantage





* Draws together key findings relating to the impact of increasing diversity in Irish schools in comparison with international trends





Part three: Teacher Education for Changing Times





* Presents research on teacher education at all stages of the teaching career and discusses how teachers can adapt to the challenges of change
