Bringing knowledge back in

£12.99

Product description

2008. What knowledge will citizens need in the future? In this new book, Michael Young builds on ideas developed initially in Knowledge and Control and The Curriculum of the Future and argues that policy emphasis on lifelong learning should shift from questions of access and participation to questions of knowledge and pedagogy. He stresses the importance of the question of knowledge in education and explores its implications both for theory in the sociology of education and for educational policy. The book is divided into three sections: Section 1 challenges the prevailing orthodoxy of post-modernism in educational theory, which reduces all questions of knowledge to practice. It draws on the work of Durkeim, Bernstein and Vygotsky. Section 2 applies the ideas developed in the first section to issues such as lifelong learning, key skills, social exclusion and the reform of vocational education. Section 3 questions the role of sociology in influencing educational policy.

Oxfam Books & Music Olney

Welcome to Oxfam Books And Music Olney, situated just off the market square in Stanley Court opposite the Co-op. Come and browse our extensive selection of books, music, DVDs, computer games and cards. In our shop you can discover a great range of material from the latest modern fiction to classic literature and vintage LPs. We are always happy to receive your donations of books or music, and you can choose to Gift Aid them to Oxfam. We might also be able to collect particularly large donations - just ask. We are always interested in hearing from people who wish to volunteer with us. Just pop in to collect an application form.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
