Educating the Young

The Ethics of Care


Edited By Jeanne Adèle Kentel

This collection of essays initiates a conversation about the educational interests of the young and considers the potential for pedagogical transformation. Organized into three parts, dealing with the pedagogy of care, child honouring and telling children the truth, respectively, the volume engages with some of the key ethical challenges involved in educating young people. Through the diverse perspectives and approaches of sixteen authors, the book examines conflicting educational ideologies through a critical pedagogical lens. These authors consider poetic, aesthetic, inspiring, historical, political and ethical ways of both educating and being educated by the young. The volume aims to provoke further thought and debate among those who wish to consider the complex nature of educating the young with honesty, honour and care.
