Education and Society (third edition) is a completely new edition of this popular text. In fifteen wholly new chapters, the authors, outstanding educators, writers and leaders in their particular fields, focus on questions which have a highly current relevance for students of education in 2001 and beyond. Future teachers for our twenty-first century will read chapters which deal with such key issues as education for active citizenship, democracy and education, social identity, conflict and education for peace, social class in children's lives, reconciliation and multiculturalism, Asian values and human rights, minority school settings, marketing schools, gender and ethnicity and achievement, Information Technology, education and new literacies and issues arising from emerging technology-society relations in cyberspace and information technology dependence. 

The new edition of Education and Society (third edition) complements the excellent selection of chapters in Education and Society and can be used in conjunction with the earlier edition, in order to offer students a wide and stimulating introduction and overview to the major issues in the debate over the relationship between the school and the social and economic and political institutions which surround it.
