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.

Abstract

Schneiderman was a trade unionist leader, suffragist and social reformer who dedicated her life to improving the lives of American working people. She organized women workers' fight for equitable pay, safety standards, better working conditions and social welfare provisions. Her vision of labor justice shaped many of the groundbreaking legislative measures of the New Deal: the National Labor Relations Act (1935), the Social Security Act (1935), and the Fair Labor Standards Act (1938).
