Education in Hope

Critical Pedagogies and the Ethic of Care

Series:

Tony Monchinski

This book explores the relationship between critical pedagogies and an ethic of care. The critical pedagogies of John Dewey, Paulo Freire, and scholars/activists in the field of feminist pedagogy are shown to reflect an ethic of care. In clarifying this relationship, Education in Hope uncovers and challenges the dominant ethical models underlying contemporary educational paradigms
