Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0750709553, Hardcover)

Communitarianism, as a movement, is clearly a dominant theme within New Labour's educational policy. How does this affect education and the life and work of schools?
Research has shown that there is a correlation between academic achievement and the strength of community life and awareness within a school. The aim of this book, therefore, is to introduce communitarian thought to classroom teachers and to those working in education. The book contextualizes the current debates within education around the many topical ideas being developed by communitarian thinkers, including:
character building; the role of parents; the community and the individual; values education and citizenship; community education; and standards and ethos in schools.
Throughout, the book makes specific reference to the practical implications for both primary and secondary schools as well as for further education colleges.
This is a timely book that should be of interest to all those working in schools and with children and young people. It aims to be a guide to this important and highly influential movement that is shaping our educational future.
