Equality in the Primary School Promoting Good Practice Across the Curriculum by Dave Hill, Leena Helavaara Robertson

Equality in the Primary School Promoting Good Practice Across the Curriculum



Equality in the Primary School Promoting Good Practice Across the Curriculum by Dave Hill, Leena Helavaara Robertson

Drawing on a wealth of knowledge from a varied list of contributors, from the UK, USA and elsewhere, the editors discuss the importance of going beyond equal opportunities. The contributors provide a compelling argument for promoting equality in primary schools. Issues covered include: social class; 'race'; gender; social orientation; disability and special educational needs with reference to all subjects taught at primary school level.


'This comprehensive collection of articles offers an erudite resource to all those interested in Primary education and equality. The strength of this book is the range of scholars and practitioners who provide an adroit unity between theoretical and empirical perspectives. If there is one book that teachers established and new ought to read, this is it.'
Alpesh Maisuria, Senior Lecturer in Education Studies, Anglia Ruskin University, UK
