NoNonsense Rethinking Education

Whose Knowledge Is It Anyway?

by Adam Unwin, John Yandell 

What is knowledge? Who decides what is important? Who owns it? These are central themes that run through this title that aims to change perceptions and understanding of education. Using historical and contemporary examples, the authors examine the motivations, conflicts, and contradictions in education. In breaking down the structures, forces, and technologies involved they show how alternative approaches can emerge.
