Why Still Education? will appeal to researchers of education - scholars and students alike - in the fields of philosophy, sociology, pedagogy, andragogy, psychology, political theory, anthropology, and history, as well as experts in education management and educational practitioners, such as teachers and textbook authors. The question posed by the title is separated in the book into three more specific questions; the first of which, titled "Education for What?", investigates the eternal issue the purpose of education. The second section, which examines the most appropriate approaches and expected outcomes for a child-centred perspective, is called "Education for Whom?"; and the third part, "Whose Education?", takes national, gender and other subtle or self-explanatory characteristics of education and looks at them from the standpoint of discrimination. The volume offers nine different chapters, which provide illuminating and interesting answers to these questions, and, thus, allow them to be more thoroughly resolved and enable rational discourse about them.
