    The Study of Education: An Introduction considers the nature, aims and purposes of education. It introduces the student new looking at education as an academic discipline to the key perspectives and contexts of education in order to prepare them for further study in the field. This book is an accessible, introductory course companion for education related courses. Boxed examples and case studies are provided where appropriate, to enable the student learner to contextualise the introductory theory that is presented. The authors also introduce methods of autobiography through which students will be challenged to explore and contextualise their own educational journey in order to make sense of education in the past, present and future.
