Hinchliffe, Geoffrey – Ethics and Education, 2018
First of all, I define the concept of epistemic freedom in the light of the changing nature of educational practice that prioritise over-prescriptive conceptions of learning. I defend the 'reality' of this freedom against possible determinist-related criticisms. I do this by stressing the concept of agency as characterised by 'becoming'. I also…

Culp, Julian – Ethics and Education, 2018
Nussbaum's moral cosmopolitanism informs her capability-based theory of justice, which she uses in order to develop a distinctive model of cosmopolitan democratic education. I characterize Nussbaum's educational model as a 'statist model,' however, because it regards cosmopolitan democratic education as necessary for realizing democratic…

Porsdam Mann, Sebastian; de Lora Deltoro, Pablo; Cochrane, Thomas; Mitchell, Christine – Ethics and Education, 2018
Drugs used to provide improvement of cognitive functioning have been shown to be effective in healthy individuals. It is sometimes assumed that the use of these drugs constitutes cheating in an academic context. We examine whether this assumption is ethically sound. Beyond providing the most up-to-date discussion of modafinil use in an academic…

Olsthoorn, Peter; Schut, Michelle – Ethics and Education, 2018
Although the notion of universal human rights allows for the idea that states (and supranational organizations such as the European Union) can, or even should, control and impose restrictions on migration, both notions clearly do not sit well together. The ensuing tension manifests itself in our ambivalent attitude towards migration, but also…

Talanker, Sergei – Ethics and Education, 2018
I argue that teaching evaluation tools (TETs) may function as ethical codes (ECs), and answer certain demands that ECs cannot sufficiently fulfill. In order to be viable, an EC related to the teaching profession must assume a different form, and such a form is already present in several of the contemporary TETs. The TET matrix form allows for…

Tillson, John – Ethics and Education, 2018
Is it true that all formative influence is unethical, and that we ought to avoid influencing children (and indeed anyone at all)? There are more or less defensible versions of this doctrine, and we shall follow some of the strands of argument that lead to this conclusion. It seems that in maintaining that all influence is immoral, one commits…

Thompson, Winston C. – Ethics and Education, 2018
In this paper, Thompson engages the fact that educators perceive themselves to be faced with an apparent dilemma regarding racial identity education. On one hand, their political obligations may incline them to teach racial identity so as to avoid reifying the reality of a racialized system of power. On the other hand, honoring their epistemic…

Bain, Zara – Ethics and Education, 2018
I argue that political philosopher Charles W. Mills' twin concepts of 'the epistemology of ignorance' and 'white ignorance' are useful tools for thinking through racial injustice in the British education system. While anti-racist work in British education has a long history, racism persists in British primary, secondary and tertiary education. For…

Fitzpatrick, Melissa; Reed-Sandoval, Amy – Ethics and Education, 2018
This article seeks to explore ways in which pre-college pedagogical resources--particularly Critical Race Pedagogy (CPR) developed for high school students, as well as Philosophy for Children (P4C)--can be helpfully employed by college level instructors who wish to dialogue with students about the nature of race and racial oppression. More…

Tate, Shirley Anne; Page, Damien – Ethics and Education, 2018
'Unconscious bias happens by our brains making incredibly quick judgements and assessments without us realising. Biases are influenced by background, cultural environment and experiences and we may not be aware of these views and opinions, or of their full impact and implications. This article opposes this point of view by arguing that bias is not…

Rudolph, Sophie; Sriprakash, Arathi; Gerrard, Jessica – Ethics and Education, 2018
This paper offers a critique of 'powerful knowledge'--a concept in Education Studies that has been presented as a just basis for school curricula. Powerful knowledge is disciplinary knowledge produced and refined through a process of 'specialisation' that usually occurs in universities. Drawing on postcolonial, decolonial and Indigenous studies,…

Chetty, Darren – Ethics and Education, 2018
In this paper, I argue that the notion of 'reasonableness' that is, for many, at the heart of the Philosophy for Children (P4C) approach particularly and education for democratic citizenship more broadly, is constituted within the epistemology of 'white ignorance' and operates in such a way that it is unlikely to transgress the boundaries of white…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Ethics and Education, 2018
The present paper theorises white discomfort as not an individual psychologised emotion, but rather as a social and political affect that is part of the production and maintenance of white colonial structures and practices. Therefore, it is suggested that white discomfort cannot be critically addressed merely in pedagogic terms and conditions…

Dotson, Kristie – Ethics and Education, 2018
Calls for diversity in higher education have been ongoing for, at least, a century. Today, the diversity movement in higher education is in danger of being co-opted in the US by a move to make 'intellectual diversity,' i.e. the diversity of political opinion, on par with the cultural and historical diversity that one finds within differently…

Bicker, Jack – Ethics and Education, 2018
Drawing on respective ideas from within both liberal political philosophy and Frankfurt School critical theory, this paper seeks to examine claims about autonomy and empowerment made on behalf of educational policies such as teacher-led codeswitching; a policy that seeks to empower students from racially marginalised groups by facilitating their…
