Reflections on the Moral & Spiritual Crisis in Education


Rachel Purpel, William M. McLaurin, Jr., Nancy Gore and Susan Hartley

This book takes a sharply critical view of contemporary society with a searing indictment of our morally and intellectually bankrupt educational system. Uniquely, the book contains both the original version of David Purpel’s highly influential Moral and Spiritual Crisis in Education, first published in 1989, as well as an updated critique of that work – reflections from our current times of growing despair about the directions of education and the nation. Reflections on the Moral and Spiritual Crisis in Education focuses on the possibility – and necessity – of generating hope through the redemptive and energizing power of the human spirit.
