Introduction to Education Studies has proven itself to be the key text for students of the subject for over a decade, leading readers through the field’s key strands, concepts and applications without assuming any prior knowledge. Drawing from the main themes that underpin the discipline of Education Studies (sociology, philosophy, history, psychology and policy) Bartlett and Burton introduces students to different ways of looking at education and the ideologies that shape the system. The book provides first-time students, and those engaged in more advanced aspects of the subject, with all the tools that they need to approach Education Studies, encouraging a critical, questioning approach which will put them in good stead for further study and professional practice. The new edition includes: * Up-to-date coverage and careful analysis of education policy developments from the ‘Gove years’ up to the 2015 UK general election, ensuring students have a strong understanding of contemporary English education. * Enhanced coverage of early years and post-compulsory education * Additional discussion of SEN and inclusion This book also comes with a fresh companion website which includes: * ‘Video discussions’ exploring key issues related to that chapter, broadening students’ understanding through an engaging learning style * Access to SAGE articles – taking students further in their reading and development

Superb intro for anyone embarking on BEd PGCE or Ed studies, I couldn’t put this down. Absolutely superb intro for anyone embarking on a career in education or the study of education. Should be on all your reading lists! So accessible that I recommend you read in the Summer hols before your course. Logically organised, plainly written, very engaging and a strong encouragement towards evidence based practice. I highly recommend this book.
