In Search of Social Justice

A new book published on John Bennett's Lifetime Contribution to Early Childhood Policy and Practice. Edited by Nóirín Hayes, School of Education, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland and Mathias Urban, Dublin City University, Ireland.

Commemorating the life and work of Dr John Bennett; his lifelong contribution to Early Childhood Education and Care, and his ongoing influence on policy, research and practice, In Search of Social Justice is a tribute to a preeminent scholar and his vision for an equitable and high-quality start for all children. This books draws on personal reflections, vignettes and testimonials from eminent authors who shared their professional lives with Bennett, to argue for the continued relevance of his approach and foreground his insistence that we must continue to shape policy and provision through inquiry, passion and persistence, to improve the early experiences of all young children.
