Course Introduction

The MA Education Policy programme will explore key debates in national and international education policy. Students will engage with concepts in the changing landscape of global education policy and engage with a critical analysis of the different theoretical perspectives and debates around it (new forms of funding and delivery, privatisation, evaluation and inspection, etc.).Students will examine key education policies in the UK and other countries, with a particular focus on social justice to consider the possibilities for more socially, fair and democratic policy enactments. Students will also explore a range of areas of identities including, but not limited to, social class, gender and 'race'/ethnicity to consider how these aspects of identity shape the policy formation and enactment process in the UK and internationally.
