Review:

'Bailey has brought together a scholarly, lucid and balanced collection of essays that survey and discuss some of the key issues in contemporary philosophy of education. The collection is refreshing, engaging, and serious. I highly recommend it.'
James Arthur, Editor of the British Journal of Educational Studies, and Professor of Education and Civic Engagement, University of Birmingham, UK

'This exciting text breaks new ground in its approach to philosophy of education in its modelling of the activity of philosophizing. Provocative and thought-provoking chapters by internationally esteemed education philosophers offer readers conceptual tools with which to consider important contemporary questions, policies and practices in education. It is a book that will appeal to students and educators who wish to develop a scholarly and critical orientation to issues in education.'
Kathy Hall, Professor of Education and Head of the School of Education, University College Cork, Ireland

'This book is a very clear and accessible invitation to parents, students and teachers alike to reflect upon a variety of pressing concepts and issues that (in)form educational debates. Each chapter is a concise expression of its chosen subject matter that is both historically important within educational policy and practice, and which is exemplified in reference to contemporary issues and contexts.'
Mike McNamee, Professor of Applied Ethics, Swansea University, UK
