‘Introducing students to the complexities of Education Studies is a difficult task and this book will go a long way to making it easier. I will definitely be recommending this to all my students.’
Kevin Brain, Programme Leader, Education Studies, Leeds Trinity University
This textbook explains the basic principles of sociology and relates these concepts to today’s society and education system in order to deepen your understanding of how these issues affect our lives and the world we live in, encouraging you to think critically and to develop a ‘sociological imagination’.
Coverage includes:
  • the wider political and economic context for education in the UK, including an analysis of the reforms of the 2010 coalition government
  • childhood, schooling and pupil voice
  • non-traditional consideration of critical pedagogy, ‘race’ and gender
  • the role of education in a multicultural society
  • inequalities in educational opportunity in terms of class, ethnicity and disability.
This is essential reading for students on undergraduate Education Studies degrees, and for sociology courses covering educational issues.

This book provides an excellent base for students to begin the process of critical reflection and resistance to dominant hegemonies within educational debates. It will be a stalwart in my reading lists for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in teacher development.
Tomas Boronski and Nasima Hassan provide a comprehensive and very accessible examination of the sociology of education.  They deftly guide the reader though major sociological themes, explore pertinent historical and contemporary issues in education, interweave the perspectives of various sociologists and challenge the reader to engage with sociological ideas through thought-provoking Reading Suggestions and Thinking Points.    An essential, student-friendly text for Education Studies.

An excellent teaching book. It provides an overview of key topics in the sociology of education and education studies that combines depth, breadth and, crucially, accessibility for students. I really like the insightful overviews with prompts for critical thinking which will inform and stimulate students without over-facing them.  Introducing students to the complexities of education studies is a difficult task and this book will go a long way to making it easier.  I will definitely be recommending this to all my students. 
Sociology of Education by Thomas Boronski and Nasima Hassan is sure to become essential reading for students and academics alike. The book provides useful contextual detail to locate educational theory in the zeitgeist of different historical moments, and in so doing helps clarify the significance of neoliberal ideology for education policy today. Carefully researched and clearly written, this book is both a thorough introduction to the sociology of education and a useful resource for more experienced readers.
