Nuffield Review wins book prize
Monday, November 15, 2010
Congratulations to the Nuffield Review team whose publication ‘Education for all: the future of education and training for 14-19 years’ has won second prize in the Society for Educational Studies Book Awards 2010. The authors (Richard Pring, Geoff Hayward, Ann Hodgson, Jill Johnson, Ewart Keep, Alis Oancea, Gareth Rees, Ken Spours and Stephanie Wilde) consider 2 key questions
- what counts as an education 19 year old today?; and
- are the models of education we have inherited from the past sufficient to meet the needs of all young people as well as the social and economic needs of the wider community?
Evidence was collected over a five year period in the Nuffield Review. Within the context of a fair recognition of what has recently been achieved the authors offer a critical, comprehensive and readable account of what needs to be done for students in the 14-19 age group.
