This book presents ideas on education, gender and intersectionality through a transdisciplinary frame by crossing disciplinary and methodological borders. Exploring the diversity of educational settings ranging from early childhood to adult education, it brings together scholars from various disciplines to discuss, deconstruct and problematize gender and education in relation to several themes in a comparative, intersectional, local, national, regional and international perspective. Each chapter approaches the topic in an intersectional and/or transnational manner and creates powerful gendered educational knowledge. Questions addressed in the book include: What are the challenges or barriers to gender-equal education? How can we understand the gaps between formal policies and educational practices? The chapters in the book illustrate how gender and education are relevant and needed concepts within the field of transdisciplinary research. The authors hail from a range of countries, such as Croatia, Indonesia, Turkey, UK, as well as the Nordic region, and they critically examine gender and education at all levels and in diverse sectors, and with varied lenses, such as neoliberalism in education, and the inclusion of newcomers and refugees. The work also critically investigates programs and pedagogical approaches, culture and values, knowledge and identity in teacher education. The book further addresses criticisms of Western and Anglophone bias around “white feminism” and the norm of white, male and heterosexual privilege.

"Len Barton's intellectual and practical contribution to the sociology of disability and education is highly significant and widely known. The leading scholars in this collection, including his long term collaborators, offer both a celebration and a reassessment of this contribution, addressing the challenge that the social model of disability has presented to dominant medicalised concepts, categories and practices, and their power to define the identity and the lives of others. At the same time the authors build upon some of the key themes that are woven through Len Barton's work, such as his call for a &‘politics of hope'. This collection explores a wide range of topics, including: difference as a field of political struggle; the relationship of disability studies, disabled people and their struggle for inclusion; radical activism: organic intellectuals and the disability movement; discrimination, exclusion and effective change; inclusive education; the &‘politics of hope', resilience and transformative actions; and, universal pedagogy, human rights and citizenship debates. The Sociology of Disability and Inclusive Education highlights Len Barton's humane vision of academic work, of the nature of an inclusive and non-discriminatory society, of the role of an education system which addresses the rights, and potential of all participants. It indicates how such a society could be achieved through the principles of social inclusion, human rights, equity and social justice."--Publisher.

The essays in this edited collection argue that global citizenship education realistically must be set against the imperfections of our contemporary political realities. As a form of education it must actively engage in a critically informed way with a set of complex inherited historical issues that emerge out of a colonial past and the savage globalization which often perpetuates unequal power relations or cause new inequalities. The essays in the book explore these issues and the emergent world ideologies of globalism, as well as present territorial conflicts, ethnic, tribal and nationalist rivalries, problems of increasing international migration and asylum, growing regional imbalances and increasing world inequalities. Contributors to this collection, each on their own way, argues that global citizenship education needs to project new values, to reality test and debate the language, concepts and theories of global citizenship and the proto-world institutions that seek to give expression to nascent aspirations for international forms of social justice and citizen participation in world government. Many of the contributors argue that global citizenship education offers the prospect of extending the liberal ideologies of human rights and multiculturalism, and of developing a better understanding of forms of post-colonialism. One thing is sure, as the essays presented in this book demonstrate so clearly, there can be no one dominant notion of global citizenship education as notions of 'global', 'citizenship' and 'education' are all contested and open to further argument and revision. Global citizenship education does not name the moment of global citizenship or even its emergence so much as the hope of a form of order where the rights of the individual and of cultural groups, irrespective of race, gender, ethnicity or creed, are observed, preserved and protected by all governments in order to become the basis of citizen participation in new global spaces that we might be tempted to call global civil society.

The World Education Forum of April 2000, set gender equality as one of its important goals. The target was to achieve parity in enrolment of girls and boys in primary education and secondary education by 2005 and full equality by 2015. This monitoring report shows that many countries will fail to make the 2005 target but circumstances could change quickly, with appropriate policy changes. However educational inequality is caused by deep-rooted social forces and a wide range of economic and social changes are needed.

"We have attained disarmament, the guns are silent, peace has returned, but we must ensure we guard that peace. We must cultivate desirable attitudes and build a moral and disciplined society as we ensure character development in our young. - (Honourable Alpha Tejan Wurie, Minister of Education, Science and Technology, 2003) Following eleven years of civil strife and violence, the people of Sierra Leone are once again on the road to development and advancement, restoring their country to what was once called the Athens of Africa. With this vision in mind, the Education Ministry with the support of the Commonwealth Secretariat and civil society partners has forged a consensus on how the citizen of tomorrow shall be educated which will be high lighted in a forthcoming National Policy for Education in Sierra Leone. This book is a vital component of that policy. It is an expression of the new dispensation in Sierra Leonian education, articulating the restoration of Citizenship Education as an essential aspect of the curriculum at all levels of the Education system.
