Book Description

Originally published in 2004. In this book Kathy Hall analyses recent educational reform in England relating to primary education and literacy. By taking account of themes such as globalisation, teacher education, children's learning and especially literacy, she develops a critique of government reactions and explores alternative responses to the crucial issues of our time. The book concludes with policy recommendations based on evidence drawn from a range of perspectives. Inviting the reader to consider what is happening in primary education generally, and in literacy more specifically, the book will prove both thought– and action– provoking.
