Living with Uncertainty while Maintaining Educational Values (A Critical Overview)
Barrow, Robin
Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education, v112 n1 p238-258 2013
This paper endorses the overall argument of the preceding contributions. It argues for an approach to teacher education focused more strongly on the nature of the educational enterprise and the why, wherefore and how of teaching specific subjects. The importance of distinguishing between the provisional nature of knowledge claims and relativism is stressed, as is the distinction between the uncertain and the arbitrary.
