Summary
Now in its fourth edition, 'Education, change and society' continues to help readers situate educational activity in its broad social and policy contexts. The study of education can do more than help us understand how individuals may learn and how teachers should teach. This book encourages discussion and debate, and points to issues that are highly significant for an understanding of education today. This book encourages discussion and debate, and points to issues that are highly significant for an understanding of Australian education today. Questions raised in this book include: What impact has globalisation had on Australian schools? How do Aboriginal students experience Australian schools? Why are Australian schools funded in such peculiar ways? Why did state, private and corporate schools emerge as they did in Australia? How do social class and gender differences affect schooling and its outcomes? How do cultural differences affect the schooling of students and their communities? How does the world of education in cities differ from that in regional, rural and remote schools? How does what is taught in schools-the curriculum-relate to the preceding questions? What constitutes the work of teachers, and can teachers 'make a difference'? It has never been more important for students of education to be able to understand the connections between the local and the global in explaining contemporary educational change. But it is not enough to understand the connection between local and international events: This book will help students appreciate how the Australian system has been shaped over time, and how this has influenced the current institutions and policies that comprise the state of education today
