Sociology for Education Studies provides a fresh look at the sociology of education, focusing on themes such as habitus, hegemony and intersectionality. It supports students in applying sociological theory to their own educational experiences and developing an understanding of why social orders appear to be predetermined, why the state continues to create education policy in certain forms and, crucially, how to make it better.

The book explores the multi-faceted perspectives that influence the sociology of education and presents examples of the applications of sociology to a wide variety of different educational contexts, including education in schools and in the community. Chapters cover topics such as:

Morality, education and social order Spaces of invisibility and marginalisation in schools The global political economy of education Rethinking the 'international perspective' in Education Studies This accessible book is an essential read for students of Education Studies as well as those involved in teacher education and training.
