Abstract

This Reader critically examines educational issues related to equity, diversity and social justice and how they are socially, culturally and economically rooted in educational practice across diverse educational settings. It highlights research, practice and pedagogies that challenge and transform educational experiences to support equity, social justice and inclusivity.

The contributors offer a broad range of methodologies and international perspectives on the effects of diversity on pedagogy, policy, management and curriculum, with the breadth of experiences underpinning inequalities a central theme. The critical perspectives and the examples explored offer a wealth of insights for those who are interested in the pursuit through education of equality, social justice and social inclusion for disadvantaged groups.
