Resisting Educational Inequality: Reframing Policy and Practice in Schools Serving Vulnerable Communities (Paperback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


Resisting Educational Inequality examines poverty, social exclusion and vulnerability in educational contexts at a time of rising inequality and when policy research suggests that such issues are being ignored or distorted within neoliberal logics.

In this volume, leading scholars from Australia and across the UK examine these issues through three main focus areas:

Mapping the damage: what are our explanations for the persistent nature of educational inequality?

Resources for hope: what do we know about how educational engagement and success can be improved in schools serving vulnerable communities?

Sustaining hope: how might we reframe research, policy and practice in the future?

Using a range of theories and methodologies, including empirical and theory-building work as well as policy critique, this book opens innovative areas of thinking about the social issues surrounding educational practice and policy. By exploring different explanations and approaches to school change and considering how research, policy and practice might be reframed, this book moves systematically and insightfully through damage towards hope. In combining pedagogy, policy and experience, Resisting Educational Inequality will be a valuable resource for all researchers and students, policymakers and education practitioners.
