An essential text for those studying English education; notably this updated edition charts recent political influences on the education system. This fourth edition guides the reader through the rich and complex realities of education and, in doing so, presents a critical and analytical engagement with the field of education studies.

This book is an excellent and highly accessible text for students and lecturers of Education Studies alike. It positions itself at the heart of the discipline and considers the development of the subject and contextualises it within the modern social sciences. The exploration of the main themes of history, psychology, sociology and philosophy are interspersed with opportunities for reader reflection and student activities. The inclusion of video discussion and companion website links are particularly useful features and are welcome additions to the text.
Introduction to education Studies by Bartlett and Burton has become a staple text for students of education over recent years. In this latest edition the authors have once again succeeded in providing a rich and detailed book that considers the nature and purpose of education as a discipline whilst always encouraging the reader to reflect upon their own educational biographies and histories. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach the text charts the ranging philosophical, sociological and ideological underpinnings of education and draws usefully upon this breadth of interpretations. The reader is consequently encouraged to question their own prejudices and positions in relation to their educational experiences.  A particular strength of the book is the way in which it engages the reader through reader reflections and activities. Consequently this text provides a useful and engaging resource for all students of education throughout their studies.
