Philosophical Studies in Education: Proceedings of the 1978 Annual Meeting of the Ohio Valley Philosophy of Education Society.
Carter, John E., Ed.; Angello, Richard, Ed.
The proceedings consist of the presidential address, papers, responses, and dialogue presented at the annual meeting of the Ohio Valley Philosophy of Education Society. Papers emphasized several themes: 1) appraisals of professionalism, 2) obligations of teachers in the areas of ethics and morality, 3) historical arguments relating to the oligarchy of educational expertise, and 4) philosophical views on the nature and scope of professional authority. In the presidential address, Gerald M. Reagan of the Ohio State University examined the growing concern in colleges and universities over evaluation of faculty members by students. Reagan suggested that peer review and evaluation of faculty members would be more appropriate. Other papers focused on the need to establish goals for teaching ethics, social influences on moral education, a critique of values education, socializing functions of schooling, a revisionist interpretation of John Dewey's social and political philosophy, coercion by educators to prepare people for a democratic society, teaching about ethnic diversity in a culturally pluralistic society, the relationship between teaching and learning, and the pre-socratic roots of Western education.
