Description

The Child, Society and You explores the links between childhood and youth learning, legislation, policy and significant societal events, examining the ways in which educational engagement is both important and personal. Using a range of case studies, each chapter provides up to date coverage of educational concerns as they influence professional practice to encourage debate. Outlining the ways in which recently occuring childhood and youth cases have impacted the education system, and examining the government's responses to these with reference to empirical studies, it provides an insightful introduction to the relationship between society, policy and education.show more
