Justice and Caring: The Search for Common Ground in Education

Front Cover
Michael S. Katz, Nel Noddings, Kenneth A. Strike
Teachers College Press, Apr 9, 1999 - Education - 186 pages

This thought-provoking volume confronts the expected tension between care and justice as moral orientations. These original essays, by renowned educators, reveal how these two moral orientations can work together to produce wiser and more practical policies and practices. The authors explore problems at every level of education and tackle tough questions in theory, practice, and policy making. Using real-life examples, they illustrate the great value of theoretical collaboration, instead of competing with each other, justice and care should complement each other in both moral theory and practice.
