Education Policy and Social Justice
School of Education
This module will examine issues of inequity and social justice in Education. It draws upon research, policy and contemporary thinking in the field to provide an overview of the kinds of educational inequalities that can exist and persist across particular social groups. We will examine who benefits and does not benefit from education and the role of policy in affecting this. In particular, the module will consider what contributes to educational inequalities and what might be done to interrupt them to produce an education system that is fairer and more inclusive.
