1 - 2 weeks availability


This volume confronts the expected tension between care and justice as moral orientations. The essays, by renowned educators, reveal how these two moral orientations can work together to produce wiser and more practical policies and practices. The authors explore problems at every level of education and tackle tough questions in theory, practice and policy making. Using real-life examples, they illustrate the great value of theoretical collaboration - instead of competing with each other, justice and care can and should work together.
