Education in a World Wracked by Crisis (FORUM 2)
Author: SUSAN ROBERTSON
The author argues that there have been major challenges to, and changes in, the role that education now plays in societies around the world. Pointing to growing social inequalities in countries like the USA and Europe, she explores the dynamics that have given rise to these education inequalities through a critical focus on five crises. She concludes by calling for imagination about how to develop a very different kind of society through more socially-just institutions.
