A new and innovatory volume, theBlackwell Handbook of Education is both authoritative and accessible. It will be an invaluable companion and reference source for professionals and parents, student teachers, headteachers, governors, in schools and colleges, lay inspectors, and local politicians and others.

It covers a wide variety of topics in A to Z format: education (concepts and issues, disciplines, types and phases); schools and others institutions and their organization; roles (duties and responsibilities) and people; regulations and conditions, individual differences among learners; curriculum and assessment; pedagogy; and resources. In addition, there are separate guides to acronyms, organizations and legislation.

While the Handbook can be used as a quick and easy reference, its classified index enables the reader to read more systematically in the area of choice, perhaps "pedagogy" for example.

The book has been extensively trialed on its potential readers to ensure that in its scope, depth, content and style it meets a real need as a contemporary guide to the field of education.

"Well organized and filled with recent data and significant educational research. Users will be struck by the inclusion of many educational terms and issues such as hyperactivity, multicultural education, and readiness that are familiar to those used in the United States. Education professors and administrators needing information on specific British government–sponsored reports and legislation from 1861 to the present will find the chronological list in section 4 especially helpful."Kathleen W.
