Education for the Good Society
Lawson, Neal; Spours, Ken
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v53 n2 p195-205 2011
The Left is facing a crisis of its approach to education highlighted by the "education revolution" of the Coalition Government. The authors argue that it is important to step back and present a positive vision of education based on the key pillars of the Good Society--fairness, democracy, sustainability and well-being. This values-led agenda, whilst offering an opportunity to take the moral and philosophical high ground, will also present a number of difficult strategic questions. (Contains 19 notes.)
