'This excellent book considers the extent to which policy and practice, particularly in the UK, have led to a more equitable education system and ultimately to a fairer society. The ideas and arguments are extremely accessible, wide-ranging and well-informed. A welcome addition to the reading list and one that I can highly recommend' - Jane Bates, Programme Leader fo Education Studies, Manchester Metropolitan Univeristy Inequalities can be experienced in different forms, from birth to school experiences to the many different modes of learning as we grow up. This book focuses on educational experience as a lifelong and society-wide issue.
