The Spirit of the School

by Julian Stern

The Spirit of the School Synopsis

This book gives a unique insight into spirituality within the school environment and the wide ranging influences it has on all parties involved.Recent interest in personalized learning and the issues raised by Every Child Matters have led to renewed enthusiasm for the more personal and holistic aspects of schooling. This fascinating monograph draws on empirical evidence from schools across the world to answer key questions such as: What is the spirit of the school? How does it differ from school ethos? What can teachers and pupils do to contribute to the spirit of the school?Drawing heavily on research into learning theories (from the social constructivist tradition), community (from the philosophy of John Macmurray) and dialogue (from the philosophy of Martin Buber), Julian Stern's unique and illuminating book will stimulate fresh thinking about spiritual education.

The Spirit of the School Press Reviews

'In Julian Stern's latest book we have a fine articulation of the spiritual voice in schools, together with a commentary on how it is heard and articulated... a very enjoyable and very eclectic scholarly attempt to understand and promote the spirit of the school...admirable for its breadth of reference, originality of approach and elegance of spirit... this book succeeds in adding to our knowledge and provoking us as professionals.' British Journal of Religious Education
