Professor Jon Nixon’s ‘Recommended Read’:
Contemporary Issues in Equity in Education
Editors: Susanne Gannon and Wayne Sawyer.
Contemporary Issues of Equity in Education argues that equity and social justice must be brought back to the centre of discussions about education. It demonstrates collaborative and inclusive approaches for researching schooling in disadvantaged communities, and offers strategies and practices for reimagining schools and universities in ways that enable young people in diverse communities to effectively engage with education.
“Contemporary Issues in Equity in Education is an authoritative and wide-ranging collection of research-based papers that—while focusing specifically on the Australian context—addresses issues of general concern and contemporary relevance. All the papers are theoretically grounded, clearly focused and accessible. The contributors include internationally recognised researchers and scholars whose work has been influential in guiding national and international policies relating to education, equality and schooling. It is a book that will be of interest to educational professionals, policy makers working within the field of education, and educational researchers and scholars whose work focuses on equity issues.”
