`Addressing issues that include the challenge of disability discrimination in schooling, gender and equality, `race' and racism, sexuality and social justice, and class analysis and knowledge formation, Education, Equality and Human Rights is an urgent and important contribution to the social justice literature as it intersects with current educational debates and struggles.' Professor Peter McLaren, University of Auckland, New Zealand

Education, Equality and Human Rights traces the history of diverse equality issues up to the present, and enables readers to assess their continuing relevance in the future. Written by experts in their particular field, each of the five equality issues of gender, `race', sexual orientation, disability and social class are covered as areas in their own right as well as in relation to education.
