Education for Death
Puolimatka, Tapio; Solasaari, Ulla
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v38 n2 p201-213 Apr 2006
Death is an unavoidable fact of human life, which cannot be totally ignored in education. Children reflect on death and raise questions that deserve serious answers. If an educator completely evades the issue, children will seek other conversation partners. It is possible to find arguments both from secular and religious sources, which alleviate the anguish that death awakens in the mind of a child.
