From the cover: “Two major topics of debate in education today are education in the early years and partnership with parents. Both have become political and often highly controversial issues.
Early years education has been spotlighted through the nursery vouchers scheme, raising questions about the goals and quality of early years education. The relationship between schools and parents has featured in much recent government legislation, and there is still confusion as to whether parents should be seen as partners or discriminating customers. Added to these highly emotive areas are issues of access to the curriculum and children’s rights.
This reader collects together informed writings by leading authors in the field, drawing on a range of different research paradigms. Individual chapters address these important current issues, which affect both families and schools, from a wide variety of perspectives. The reader also examines concerns over inequality in terms of class, race and gender, looking at how these inequalities are inherited or created and offering readers a chance to re-evaluate themselves and their children within new frameworks of thought, practice and policy.”
