Summary

Education, Equality and Human Rightsaddresses the crucial issue of human rights and its relationship to education in the twenty-first century. Each of the five equality issues of gender, race, sexuality, disability and social class are covered as areas in their own right, and examined in relation to education. Written by experts in each particular field, chapters trace the history of the various issues up to the present and enable readers to assess their continuing relevance in the future. The third edition of this important book has been updated in light of major changes that have taken place since the last edition was published. Fully revised to reflect changes in law and policy, new issues considered include: the #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;credit crunch#xE2;#xAC;" the new US presidency new Labour#xE2;#xAC;"s latter years and the impact of changes resulting from the next election the impact of economic migration from Eastern Europe on women and work in Britain climate change and its potential effects as new types of refugees flee climate chaos impact of new technologies on the gendered experiences of education emphasis on #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;community cohesion#xE2;#xAC;" examined from an antiracist perspective legislation on civil partnerships new research on school-based sex and relationships education three major new studies on homophobia in UK schools the UN#xE2;#xAC;#xDC;s Rights of People with Disabilities convention and what it means for inclusive education.
