The Challenge to Care in Schools

Nel Noddings, Nov 24, 2021
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Nel Noddings writes, "people differ on what they mean by caring... some policymakers and educators believe that caring is a pedagogical virtue demonstrated by forcing students to achieve the skills and acquire the knowledge that has been prescribed for them." this book represents a response to that perspective based on "the relation containing carer and cared-for." In other words, "we must respond sensitively, if not always positively, to expressed needs that are morally and educationally defensible." Book-length (222 pages) PDF file.
