Frank, Jeff – Ethics and Education, 2017
This article offers a close reading of the novel Stoner by John Williams. "Stoner," and not the countless reports and jeremiads on teaching, helps us find what we are searching for: a way to live--and talk about--teaching in a dignified and artful way. We need to seek out voices that remind, recall and reveal teaching for the beautifully…

Giesinger, Johannes – Ethics and Education, 2017
To what extent does the common claim that childhood is "socially constructed" affect the ethical debate on the "intrinsic" and "special" goods of childhood? Philosophers have referred to this kind of goods in their critique of overly adult-centred and future-oriented conceptions of childhood. The view that some goods…

Marples, Roger – Ethics and Education, 2017
The Platonic view that art is incapable of providing us with knowledge is sufficiently widely held as to merit a serious attempt at refutation. Once it is acknowledged that there are alternative forms of knowledge other than propositional, then it is possible to establish the truth of the claim that the knowledge which art affords has a value on a…

Mahon, Áine – Ethics and Education, 2017
With specific reference to the teaching of Irish and English in Ireland, I am concerned in this paper with the experiences of language dispossession and language pedagogy. Drawing on Jacques Derrida's key concepts of "hospitality" and "monolingualism," I argue that in Ireland the first of these experiences cannot be separated…

Dum, Jenn – Ethics and Education, 2017
Many principles characterize educational justice in terms of the relationship between educational inputs, outputs and distributive standards.

McArthur, Neil – Ethics and Education, 2017
This article examines the question of whether universities and colleges should attempt to ban all student-faculty relationships, as many have tried to do. It argues that, because adults have a fundamental right to engage in intimate relationships without interference, supporters of relationship bans must meet a high standard in defending them. But…

Burroughs, Michael D.; Barkauskas, Nikolaus J. – Ethics and Education, 2017
Research supporting social and emotional learning (SEL) in schools demonstrates numerous benefits for students, including increased academic achievement and social and emotional competencies. However, research supporting the adoption of SEL lacks a clear conception of "ethical competence." This lack of clarity is problematic for two…

O'Reilly, Naziya – Ethics and Education, 2017
In recent years restorative practice in schools has been heralded as a new paradigm for thinking about student behaviour. Its premise is to provide solutions to indiscipline, to restore relationships where there has been conflict or harm, and to give pupils a language with which to understand wrongdoing. This article offers a critique of…

Sun, Chien-Ya – Ethics and Education, 2017
There is a trend in modern times towards taking the individual's desire to be the indicator or basis of what the good life would be for the individual. Desire is believed to be an outer expression of an inner voice. The idea is that the individual's desire shows what matters and therefore what constitutes the good life for her. An assumption is…

This paper is concerned with ways to make our education system more inclusive, to stimulate a more tolerant and democratic attitude among students, and to equip them to deal with complex issues in our society. Trying to understand and master plural viewpoints is more effective than applying the mainstream western perspective to relate to a…

Fulford, Amanda – Ethics and Education, 2017
This paper addresses both "student engagement" in contemporary universities, and student "disengagement"--where the latter is often seen as a failure of performance, or absence of will. In a bold move, the paper asks whether students "should" be engaged in their university education, and whether there is value in…

Griffiths, Morwenna; Murray, Rosa – Ethics and Education, 2017
The planet seems to be heading into an ecological catastrophe, in which the earth will become uninhabitable for many species, including human beings. At the same time we humans are beset by appalling injustices. The Rio Declaration which addressed both these sets of problems contains conceptual contradictions about "development" and…

Silverman, Marc – Ethics and Education, 2017
This paper explores the biographical and cultural sources that inspired the decision of Janusz Korczak (Warsaw, 1878; Treblinka, 1942) to make his life's vocation the education of young children from dysfunctional families. This decision emerged out of the radical version of humanism he embraced. His identification of children as the population…
