Values in Education

Values in Education Synopsis

?What are the fundamental aims and values underlying education? ?What values should education try to promote in a world of value pluralism? ?What is morality, and should schools teach it? ?In a secular society, how should schools treat the links between morality and religion? ?How should values enter into professional education and educational leadership? This book, an updated edition of Teaching about Values, will help the reader to think about these questions and many others concerning values in education. Drawing on philosophy without assuming knowledge of the subject, it is for teachers, students of education and anyone who recognises the importance of values in education.
