Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

What does the right to health mean to people who face inequalities and may struggle to access support? This is a pressing issue in Scotland where there is a national commitment to human rights, but where deep seated health inequalities are a major public health concern. The right to the highest attainable standard of health is recognised within the European Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and should be equally available, accessible, acceptable and of good quality to everyone.
