Teaching Values: Critical Perspectives on Education, Politics, and Culture
Teaching Values is the first radical response to honestly and fully enter the ongoing debate over values in contemporary education. Scapp addresses controversial issues from a broad, progressive, and postmodern perspective, offering readers the critical analyses crucial to beginning a sophisticated dialogue about values-based education. Grounding theoretical knowledge in practical examples, the book examines a range of topics, from multicultural education to the impact of postmodernism on contemporary pedagogy, and from power in the classroom to questions of masculinity.
