    Dr Spyros Themelis, Senior Lecturer in Education, launches his book 'Social Change and Education in Greece' (Palgrave Macmillan).

    About the book
    The postwar orthodoxy postulated that education is both a mechanism for upward social mobility and an engine for economic growth. This book challenges these mainstream conceptions. Using Greece and the Roma people in particular as a case study, the author examines qualitative and quantitative social mobility findings to explore the changes associated with education and to analyse their importance for individuals and society.
