Never has so much attention been devoted to education. Everyone - government ministers, social commentators and parents obsess about its problems. Yet we rarely ask why? Why is education a source of such concern? Why do many of the solutions proposedMoreNever has so much attention been devoted to education. Everyone - government ministers, social commentators and parents obsess about its problems.

Yet we rarely ask why? Why is education a source of such concern? Why do many of the solutions proposed actually make matters worse?Tony Blairs education, education, education slogan placed education at the forefront of political agendas.

But, perhaps the policisation of education is part of the problem. Today, education is valued for its potential contribution to economic development, but it is no longer considered important for itself. Increasingly, the promotion of education has little to do with the value of learning per se or with the importance of being taught about societies achievements, so future generations have the intellectual ability to advance still further. Education has been emptied of its content.This book is a brilliant piece of analysis.

It peers into the hollowness of the education debates and, drawing on thinkers from the ancient Greeks to modern critics, it sets out what we need from our schools.
