The moral & spiritual crisis in education: a curriculum for justice and compassion in education

Front Cover
Bergin & Garvey, 1989 - Education - 174 pages
"Purpel . . . ably complements the economic and political focus of critical pedagogy by shedding new light on spiritual and moral dimensions of public discourse. His book is a welcome addition to the literature in that it articulately scrutinizes the interface of culture and education and attendant trivialization of school reform. . . . While his marvelous book offers only several examples of just schools, it enormously enriches a still unfinished dialectic." Choice
