Research output: Book/ReportBook


This 4th edition of Scottish Education takes account of an important political milestone in Scotland’s history: the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum. The text looks at that closely in the context of education, reflects on the very considerable changes which have taken place since devolution in 1999, and incorporates a wealth of contemporary research evidence and scholarly analysis. Featuring some 60 new authors, the latest edition contains forthright and informed commentary on every aspect of education and is essential reading for anyone who needs to know how education ‘works’ in Scotland. The final section looks to the future, offering thoughtful critical assessments of the educational landscape ahead, whether in an even more devolved Scotland or an independent European state.
