The Routledge Education Studies Reader provides an authoritative overview of the key aspects of education for students beyond the introductory stages of a degree programme in Education Studies, enabling students to deepen their understanding.

A blend of modern-classic and contemporary readings, based on a combination of empirical research and established theory, provide coverage of the following:

  • globalisation and the impact of new technologies
  • educational policies and society
  • curriculum and pedagogy
  • assessment
  • professional learning
  • learning beyond schools.

In order to encourage engagement with the literature, each reading is introduced by the editors. Key questions accompany every reading, enabling the student to reflect on the piece. Suggestions for further reading are made and explained throughout.

The Routledge Education Studies Reader is an essential resource for students of Education Studies, especially during years 2 and 3 of the undergraduate degree. It will prove useful to other students and professionals interested in the study of education.

The Routledge Education Studies Textbook is an academically comprehensive and appropriately challenging textbook that can be used alongside this Reader.
