`This highly accessible book weaves together discussion of recent research findings, policy developments and theoretical perspectives. It provides a thought-provoking and at times contentious introduction that will challenge students and teachers to look beyond the easy and glib rhetoric, helping them understand the complexities of educating for a more equal world.'

Shereen Benjamin, Senior Lecturer in Primary Education, University of Edinburgh

This book is an introduction to issues of inequality and social justice, how they relate to education systems and how education can be a force for positive societal change. Drawing upon research, policy and contemporary thinking in the field, this second edition examines educational inequalities that exist today, what lies behind them and what effects they have across society.

New to this edition:

Wider coverage on social inequalities in relation to income and wealth New chapters on: childhood inequalities, international issues in education and social justice, and education inequalities in the USA A broader focus on how young people experience social justice that includes the experiences of young offenders.

This is essential reading for students on undergraduate education studies courses, and related degree programmes that explore the relationship between education and society.

Welcome additions to this second edition include an international dimension, and discussion of childhood beyond the school gates. It will continue to feature prominently on our reading lists.'
