BeschreibungIn Teaching Values, Ron Scapp wrests the discussion of values and values-based education away from traditionalists who have long dominated educational debates. While challenging the Right's domination of the discussion of values education, Scapp examines some issues not typically raised by educators and critics on the Left, including the positive role of citizenship and national identity in U.S. education and culture.

Pressestimmen"Written from an insightful radical perspective.["Teaching Values] takes on issues that are usually addressed soley by conservatives; it's time other voices entered these debates. The book brings a necessary voice to these discussions; a voice that blends theoretical knowledge with practical experience."
-bell hooks, author of "Teaching to Transgress
""Teaching Values calmly extricates multiculturalism from the hands of Ravitch, Schlesinger, et al. and astutely places it in the traditions of Western thought that it is supposed to be destroying, and on the high ethical ground where it belongs. Deftly avoiding both polemics and postmodern nihilism, Scapp defies current caricatures of 'the left.' Allowing his years of experience as an educator and his keen intelligence to guide the way, he helps us to think carefully, wisely, humanely, and freshly about a range of controversial issues.."
