Hand's Academy Challenge: Some Starter Questions
Gardner, Peter
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v48 n4 p637-645 Nov 2014
Michael Hand has recently challenged certain religious organisations that run Academies in the United Kingdom to devise and pursue their own faith-based curricula in their schools. In this short article I examine some of the problems Hand's challenge might encounter, including whether religious conceptions of worthwhile activities and of human flourishing can be as devoid of religious beliefs as Hand would seem to wish and whether his challenge can be met.
