- Although this is a book about ‘education’, it argues that we need to start thinking of education as something done by families, friends, workmates and society as a whole, as well as schools and colleges
- Each chapter introduces the readers to some social and political theory, but in ways accessible to a lay audience
- To complement each section, ‘think tasks’ and practical exercises will help the readers apply the insights in their personal contexts
