This is a compulsory course that introduces students to the socio-cultural contexts of education. With a particular focus on educational inequalities, this course addresses issues of power, justice and fairness with respect to inequalities in education. Oriented towards the New Zealand context and grounded in social theory, the course draws on contemporary and historical material to demonstrate ways in which education is mediated by factors such as class, gender, disability and ethnicity.
