What should the aims of education be in a liberal society? Who should exercise control over education? How can children be taught to become good citizens of a pluralistic state? The Demands of Liberal Education seeks to answer these questions by drawing on political theory, philosophy of education, and empirical research to develop a liberal theory of children's education. Author Meira Levinson argues that contrary to the assumptions of many philosophers, educators, parents, and politicians, the liberal state is obligated as a matter of justice to help all children develop the capacity for autonomy. Forwarding a provocative new view, Levinson contends that liberal governments should exercise much greater control over schools than they currently maintain.

Review:


" The Demands of Liberal Education is an intellectually stimulating work that provides aesthetic pleasure through the incisive subtlety of its arguments and the elegant clarity of its prose. Levinson has given educators, policymakers, and political philosophers a book that will serve as an invaluable resouce in research and teaching."-- Educational Researcher
