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.
