The rapidity of change in education has intensified in recent years. With the emergence of ‘co-operative schools’ and a new framework focusing heavily on co-operation, a direct challenge to ways of thinking about education at both school and university level has developed.

Co-operation, Learning and Co-operative Values addresses the urgent need to describe, analyse and assess the growth of co-operative education. The relationship between co-operation and education is a complex process and this book critically reflects on the tensions and obstacles facing this movement. It brings together the contributions of academics and practitioners form a range of  backgrounds and explores topics including:

  •  theories and histories of co-operative values and principles
  •  critical views of the practice of co-operative education
  •  case studies of processes in action from both schools and higher education
  •  co-operative education in a wider context.

This book provides an essential introduction to a new and expanding area of research with chapters by many leading commentators on education. It will be of interest to researchers and educators interested in education and social policy.
