Education and Society
This blog takes a look at current issues and developments in education, it examines how education is represented in popular media and aims to provide a sociological understanding and critique of this.
The photograph on the header is taken from a 1907 school photograph of Staindrop, near Barnard Castle, Co. Durham. It features members of the Leonard family (and others no doubt!), antecedents of mine.
I have a PhD in Sociology from Teesside University. One of my specialisms is the sociology of education, which I have taught for several years. I am currently a university lecturer in education.
