In Favour of Schools with Philosophical and Political Ideology

In Favour of Schools with Philosophical and Political Ideology published on 1 Comment on In Favour of Schools with Philosophical and Political Ideology

I take the opposite viewpoint and want to argue for what I call ‘political-schools’ which, not to be confused with a school which teaches politics, hold given political or philosophical ideologies which they infuse throughout their pastoral and educational structure. Parliament should adopt this policy and introduce schools of this type, strengthening and continuing the long-held ideologies of the United Kingdom and giving parents the opportunity to teach their politics to their children.Continue reading In Favour of Schools with Philosophical and Political Ideology

The study was interesting in that rather than addressing the question itself, it concerned itself with how the way in which people live their lives is affected by the view which they take on this question.Continue reading The Constitution of the Mind
