Teachers working in Post Compulsory Education are recognised as being subject to a particularly acute set of pressures and challenges. These can include highly diverse and sometimes challenging student groups, trying to manage a complex curriculum which changes regularly and rapidly, and having to respond to the intense demands of inspection, quality assurance regimes and major government policies. Now in its second edition, the highly regarded In at the Deep End: A Survival Guide for Teachers in Post-Compulsory Education will help you to manage the varied demands of teaching in PCE more effectively by offering friendly, professional advice and a range of teaching and learning activities which will help you become an effective, confident, committed and reflective teacher.

This book is a call to educators everywhere to recognize and resist the global forces which are driving educational policy deeper and deeper into narrow discourses of performance, accountability and 'certainties' about what works. It explores government control over educational practice and research in the US and the UK, and examines the impact of this control on teachers and learners. Ian Stronach and Patti Lather open with searing critiques of the effects of current government policy on educational research - and by implication educational practice - in the UK and the US, while Mike Newby focuses specifically on the struggle over the control of initial teacher education in the UK over the last decade. The second section offers four case studies of the effects of this control. Three chapters explore the undermining of professional autonomy: Sue Clegg and Peter Ashworth consider the narrowing effects of the language of 'learning outcomes'; James Avis critiques the punitive inspection régimes currently operating in education; Valerie Reardon compares these régimes to the sanitization of the female body; and Pat Sikes and John Clark examine autonomy and control in a school for students with 'emotional and behavioral disorders', and seek ethical ways of representing the experience of both the teachers and the learners. The final section of the book reviews issues arising from current widening participation policies in the UK. Kathryn Ecclestone writes about the effect of 'therapeutic education' on the self esteem of adult learners; Sandra Sinfield, Tom Burns and Debbie Holley consider how the policing and control of student experience undermines the trust between tutor and student; and Julie Evans and Wendy Martin, focusing on the narratives of mature students, ask in whose interest the widening participation agenda is being pursued. Finally, Roger Harrison and Tamsin Haggis examine the metaphors of learning employed by adult learners and by the policymakers whose decisions shape their experience. This is a book for educational researchers, policymakers and practitioners -- especially those working with adult learners - who want to see beyond the apparent inevitability of current ways of conducting education. It will be of value to students in education, policy studies and professional training, and of particular benefit to those delivering, undertaking or researching education and training in post-compulsory education at all levels.

With its cross-cultural, isues-oriented approach, Comparative Education introduces K-12 educational systems worldwide. Readers are invited to consider current educational issues both at home and abroad, while developing global perspectives and skills of comparative inquiry to use their own reflective classroom teaching. Chapters on theory in compartive education, frameworks for analyzing educational issues, and globalization's implications for ducation explore several key issues in depth: purposes of schooling, educational access and opportunity, education accountability and authority, and teacher professionalism. This book takes an issues-based approach rather than a country-based approach. A major purpose of this book is to widen the field of comparative education's influence by articulating the relevance of comparative education to include a larger, practitioner-oriented audience. This is a core text for graduate-level Comparative Education courses.

Recognition In Politics

The concept of recognition, and its relationship to the way we theorise identity and justice, has emerged as part of an important debate in contemporary political and social theory. With contributions from Nancy Fraser and international commentators, this new collection examines key theoretical and practical problems of 'recognition' in politics. Beyond important normative issues in social theory, such as how cultural claims to difference may be justly accommodated in liberal polities, it addresses a range of practical problems in which a politics of recognition approach casts new light on old conflicts and tensions, examining these problems within the context of processes of globalisation and increasing cultural diversity. Organised into three sections, Recognition in Politics: Theory, Policy and Practice analyses new theoretical directions, the challenges of managing multicultural societies, and social policy case studies.Featuring a recent paper by Professor Nancy Fraser based on her 2004 Spinoza Lecture, this collection examines core issues in contemporary debates over recognition, extending these debates in new and significant ways. The contributors extend the literature on recognition by applying the theory to practical, contemporary political problems. These papers reveal the capacity of the recognition paradigm to generate new insights into political problems, but also the limitations of the concept's theoretical purview. Together, these commentaries offer an invaluable road map to the most recent scholarship on recognition.
