Praise for First Edition: 'Key Issues in Secondary Education addresses crucial cross-curricular issues which are central to secondary schooling in the new millennium. We are confident that this book will make a major contribution to the understanding of new teachers as they grapple with issues that go beyond subject boundaries and as they explore the fundamental issues which affect schools and young people today.- Donald McIntyre and Mike YoungerThis eagerly awaited second edition has been fully up-dated and revised with new chapters on the nature and measurement of intelligence and issues of race and racism in school and society. Other chapters addressing the rapidly changing world of educational policy and innovation have been substantially rewritten to take account of recent developments and current debates. All contributors write clearly and accessibly, without over-simplifying the complexity of the issues or the value they pose.
