Challenge to Care in Schools : Alternative Approach to Education - 2nd edition

Challenge to Care in Schools : Alternative Approach to Education (ISBN10: 0807746096; ISBN13: 9780807746097)

Rather then forcing one side to yield to the other, this book advocates an alternative, ''re ...show moresponsive system'' that will allow the best ideas to flourish.

In the Second Edition, Noddings once again envisions a school system built on the idea that different people have different strengths, and that these strengths should be cultivated in an environment of caring, not of competition. She suggests that if we make the responsiveness characteristic of caring more basic than accountability, we can accommodate both traditional and progressive preferences in one school system to the benefit of all . . . especially the children.
