Equality, Prioritising the Disadvantaged, and the New Educational Landscape
Brighouse, Harry
Oxford Review of Education, v40 n6 p782-798 2014
This paper takes Mary Warnock's paper in the first issue of the "Oxford Review of Education" as its starting point, and explores how both philosophical thinking about equality in education and the landscape of educational provision have changed. It articulates a view of justice in education that emphasises benefiting the least advantaged; and shows that detailed philosophical thinking about values can be valuable for making policy decisions, while also showing that deploying careful value considerations is not a straightforward exercise.
