Summary
"Educational Theories, Cultures and Learning focuses on how education is understood in different cultures, the theories and related assumptions we make about learners and students and how we think about them, and how we can understand the principle actors in education - learners and teachers." "Read alongside its companion volume, Knowledge, Values and Educational Policy, this book will encourage readers to reflect on some of the key issues facing education and educationists today."--BOOK JACKET
