Class, culture and the curriculum by Denis Lawton( Book )

22 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is often argued that education is concerned with the transmission of middle-class values and that this explains the relative educational failure of the working class. Consequently, distinctive culture needs a different kind of education. This volume examines this claim and the wider question of culture in British society. It analyses cultural differences from a social historical viewpoint and considers the views of those applying the sociology of knowledge to educational problems. The author recognizes the pervasive sub-cultural differences in British society but maintains that education
A history of Western educational ideas by Denis Lawton( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work traces the development of Western educational ideas from the Greek society of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, to the ideas and ideologies behind some of the controversial issues in education today. The authors avoid the traditional "great thinkers" approach, and instead try to relate educational ideas to the political, social and economic development of the times, covering Greece and Rome, early Christianity, the Renaissance, the religious conflicts of the 15th and 16th centuries, the Enlightenment in the 18th century, and Romanticism, as well as more familiar political issues in the 19th and 20th centuries. The book concludes with a brief discussion of the problem of values and education in the 21st century. The authors reject extreme versions of postmodernist thinking, and reassert the view that values and an expression of priorities within value systems are an essential aspect of educational planning at any time

10 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most people assume that kings and queens over the ages have generally received 'a good education' - perhaps the best that money could buy at the time. This book investigates the reality of the education of British sovereigns from the beginning of the Tudor period up to the end of the twentieth century." "In tracing the changes in royal education, Peter Gordon and Denis Lawton relate them not only to educational ideas and theories, but to changing political, social and religious contexts through the centuries."--Jacket

Education and politics in the 1990s : conflict or consensus? by Denis Lawton( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World events in the late 1980s and early 1990s have resulted in the rethinking of political views. Educational reforms commonly attributed to Thatcherism and Reganism were taking place in other countries around the world. This book traces the development of the British education system from 1944. In so doing, it examines the nature of the ideological differences in education between the two major political parties in order to explore the possibility of planning for educational consensus, and the kind of consensus that might be possible. The author considers the emergence of these ideological differences within the context of the 1988 Education Reform Act and takes into account the emergence of the "New Right" politics in education and its influence on educational policies globally.; It is aimed at BEd/MA/MEd students and lecturers, education historians, researchers and policy makers

Dictionary of British education by Peter Gordon( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For at least a decade there has been an unprecedented level of change in British education. That activity is reflected in a proliferation of new terms and organisations within the education service, and a corresponding increase in baffling acronyms and initials. Many parents, school governors, and even teachers, are understandably confused by some of the new language in education. This new dictionary is intended to clarify the world of British education mainly by providing an alphabetical list of educational terms, but also by giving historical background to developments where appropriate, and showing, by careful cross-referencing, connections between some individual terms. In addition, the dictionary itself is preceded by an introduction to British education as a whole, and discusses some of the key differences between England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Fortunately, most of the basic educational terms apply to all four educational systems. The book concludes with an up-to-date explanatory list of acronyms and initials
Faith schools : consensus or conflict? by Roy Gardner( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until recently the separation of pupils in Britain according to religion was felt to be compatible with a comprehensive education. That consensus no longer holds and there is a strong and positive lobby either to abandon "faith schools" within the state system altogether or to dilute their membership by ensuring they include pupils from other faiths, or no faith at all. This book is an accessible overview of the debates, issues and practicalities of faith-based education in the UK. It sets out the challenges and opportunities of different approaches to faith schools and addresses the choices faced by parents in our plural and multicultural communities, as well as the education investment and development currently undertaken by faith schools. Finally, the case is presented for and against faith schools with a summary chapter attempting to provide a way forward for the debate. "Faith Schools" addresses the current concerns, questions and interest surrounding the legitimacy, support and intended expansion of faith schools in the UK. It sets out the historical and legal background of the establishment of such schools within the framework of state comprehensive educational provision and discusses the reasons why it is difficult to jettison these at present
