Power and Education PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Power and Education free pdf Education is a crucial influence early on in life and is therefore inextricably linked with power. This book examines how education can limit opportunities and create social inequality as well as being an empowering force for good. Drawing on a range of thinkers such as Arendt, Bourdieu, Foucault, Freire and Gramsci and exploring a number of current issues such as gender relations in techer-student interactions, coding as a new subject in national curricula, surveillance (CCTV) policies in schools, funding criteria for research, and social movements and people's governments in Latin America, this volume addresses the relationship between power and education and discusses key questions on power and knowledge.
