9780415369589: Philosophy and Educational Policy: A Critical Introduction

What are the concepts and theories behind current debates about education?
This comprehensive introduction to philosophy of education discusses issues that are of current public interest and debate. It locates education at the heart of questions concerned with culture, ethics, politics, economics and shows how key educational issues have to be approached in a contextual way.
Written in a clear and accessible manner with current issues in mind the book covers:

  • the curriculum
  • teaching and learning
  • educational research
  • assessment
  • moral, personal and civic education
  • autonomy and multicultural issues in a liberal society
  • education and work
  • privatisation and markets

This book will be particularly useful to students on Education Studies courses, to those preparing for a career in teaching, to students of politics and to serving teachers undertaking further study in education.

About the Author:

Christopher Winch is Professor of Philosophy of Education and John Gingell is Head of Philosophy, both at University College Northampton.

Review:

'Winch and Gingell’s book should be welcomed by those teacher educators and their students looking for philosophically informed discussion of the broad policy context within which teachers now work. Certainly I recommend the book to them. It would be easy to use as a set text as it is clearly written, contains summaries of the arguments at appropriate points and questions for discussion which might be used in tutorials.' - John Halliday, British Journal of Educational Studies
