    Abstract

    Book synopsis: This Reader critically examines educational issues related to equity, diversity and social justice and how they are socially, culturally and economically rooted in educational practice across diverse educational settings. It highlights research, practice and pedagogies that challenge and transform educational experiences to support equity, social justice and inclusivity. The contributors offer a broad range of methodologies and international perspectives on the effects of diversity on pedagogy, policy, management and curriculum, with the breadth of experiences underpinning inequalities a central theme. The critical perspectives and the examples explored offer a wealth of insights for those who are interested in the pursuit through education of equality, social justice and social inclusion for disadvantaged groups. Transforming Practice is essential reading for students seeking to address equity and diversity issues in all educational sectors, and for professionals with responsibility for and interest intransforming learning and enhancing educational achievement. It will be invaluable for professionals working with children, young people and adults in related areas of policy and practice, including health, social welfare, training and employment.
