Product description

Review

In easy-going prose peppered with illustrations, examples and anecdotes, Education: a very short introduction provides readers with a basic overview of philosophy, history, theory, scientific research and contemporary policy in field of education in the United States and the UK, from Plato to No Child Left Behind. The book manages to cover all the bases, including every major thinker, researcher, and policy that youd want, without devolving into encyclopedic minutia. Highly recommended. (Choice, Ben Justice)

It's a real gem of a book that pulls ideas together, that challenges and inspires - and that makes you laugh. Highly recommended. (Times Higher Education Supplement)

...an elegant and engaging work. Gary Thomas has sketched key issues with admirable economy and insight. (Professor Chris Husbands, Director - Institute of Education, University of London)
