Every now and again you find a handbook that does exactly what it
says on the tin, writes Robert Glover.
Here is a comprehensive, crystal-clear explanation of the
jargonistic world of education. Plainly written and easy to
navigate, it provides an excellent overview on current thinking and
custom and practice on every subject from “foundation stage” to
Connexions, covering every key stage in between.
It provides a wealth of information and analysis on exactly the
kind of issues that social workers come across with baffling
regularity and need to get a grip on – belonging regulations,
special educational needs codes of practice, and so on.
Providing an exceptional “what’s what” on every educational issue
you can imagine, it’s a must for social workers, youth workers,
parents, students – and probably for teachers, too.
