MacMullen, Ian – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Some people claim that religious schools are poorly suited to prepare children for citizenship in a multi-religious society that is (or aspires to be) a liberal democracy. In what sense(s), by what mechanism(s), and to what extent might this be so? And what could be the implications for public policy? I propose an analytical and evaluative…

Merry, Michael S. – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Many philosophers argue that religious schools are guilty of indoctrinatory harm. I think they are right to be worried about that. But in this article, I will postulate that there are other harms for many individuals that are more severe outside the religious school. Accordingly the full scope of harm should be taken into account when evaluating…

Vincent, Carol – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Drawing on empirical data, this article makes a contribution to knowledge through bringing together the apparently disparate elements of contemporary education policy, religion, civic virtue and values teaching, in particular, the teaching of 'fundamental British values'. I illustrate, through a discussion of the linkages between these elements,…

Hewstone, Miles; Al Ramiah, Ananthi; Schmid, Katharina; Floe, Christina; van Zalk, Maarten; Wölfer, Ralf; New, Rachel – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
We report findings from three longitudinal studies investigating the extent, quality and consequences of intergroup contact in schools between young Asian-British and White-British secondary (high-school) students. Results provide robust support for Allport's 'contact hypothesis' in this setting. Specifically, mixing (vs segregation) in high…

Mason, Andrew – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Faith schools in England are often regarded as ill-suited to cultivating the abilities, attitudes, and dispositions required for living together harmoniously in an ethnically and religiously diverse society. These concerns might be formulated in terms of the thesis that faith schools in England are considerably sub-optimal for the cultivation of…

Cuevas, Joshua; Dawson, Bryan L. – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
This study tested two cognitive models, learning styles and dual coding, which make contradictory predictions about how learners process and retain visual and auditory information. Learning styles-based instructional practices are common in educational environments despite a questionable research base, while the use of dual coding is less…

Bialystok, Lauren; Kukar, Polina – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
The educational enthusiasm for both authenticity and empathy makes a number of assumptions about universal virtues, self-hood, the role of emotion in education, and the role of the teacher. In this article, we argue that authenticity and empathy are both nebulous virtues that teachers and students are called to embody with little reflection on how…

Sardoc, Mitja; White, John – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Mitja Sardoc's interview with John White discusses a neglected aspect of the educational goal of equipping learners to lead a life of autonomous well-being--trying to ensure that they have adequate options from which to choose worthwhile activities and relationships. Following a brief account of the nature of autonomous well-being, White outlines…

Wolbert, Lynne S.; de Ruyter, Doret J.; Schinkel, Anders – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
This article explores how parents should relate to a particular (ideal) aim of education, namely, their children's future flourishing lives. The article asks three (sub)questions: (1) What does 'aiming for flourishing' mean? (2) In what sense should parents have expectations? (3) Is hope an appropriate attitude for parents with regard to their…

Joyce, Kathryn E.; Cartwright, Nancy – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
The United States considers educating all students to a threshold of adequate outcomes to be a central goal of educational justice. The No Child Left Behind Act introduced evidence-based policy and accountability protocols to ensure that all students receive an education that enables them to meet adequacy standards. Unfortunately, evidence-based…

Clayton, Matthew; Stevens, David – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Some liberal societies continue to require their schools to offer non-directive but, specifically, religious education as part of the curriculum. This article challenges that practice. It does so by articulating and defending the moral requirement that education policy must be regulated by principles that are acceptable to reasonable people.…

Kristjánsson, Kristján – Theory and Research in Education, 2017
Despite renewed interest in moral role-modelling and its emotional underpinnings, further conceptual work is needed on the logical geography of the emotions purportedly driving it, in particular, admiration, emulation and elevation. In this article, I explore admiration (as understood by Linda Zagzebski), emulation (as understood by Aristotle) and…

Croce, Michel; Vaccarezza, Maria Silvia – Theory and Research in Education, 2017
This article confronts Zagzebski's exemplarism with the intertwined debates over the conditions of exemplarity and the unity-disunity of the virtues, to show the advantages of a pluralistic exemplar-based approach to character education. This pluralistic exemplar-based approach to character education is based on a prima facie disunitarist…

Giesinger, Johannes – Theory and Research in Education, 2017
The philosophical debate on educational justice currently focusses on the Anglo-American situation. This essay brings in an additional perspective. It provides a justice-oriented critique of the segregated education systems in German-speaking countries. First, arguments that are commonly put forward in favour of these systems are rejected. Second,…
