Prologue to Education: An Inquiry into Ends and Means - Routledge Library Editions: Education (Hardback)John N. Wales (author)
- We can order this
Many people have come to feel that the controversy on education in Britain has got bogged down in political polemics, and that common polarisations between `conventional' and `progressive', `selective' and `comprehensive', `elite' and `democratic' are both unrealistic and damaging. The author believes that a new educational ethic is needed now that former religious sanctions are no longer generally operative. He believes that it is possible to regard the concept of a Rational Good as a basis for educational theory and practice. The book discusses important practical issues in education: liberty and equality, use and abuse of convention, the ethical basis and occasion for coercion, the validity of co-education as an educational principle and the John Wales concludes that the correspondence between the popular extremes of educational views is much more significant than their differences.
