Summary

The relationship between educational practice and the social principles of democracy forms an important strand in the history of educational thought, and is central to the debate on many contemporary issues in the educational field. In this concise, introductory book, Colin Wringe examines the nature of this relationship, taking account of developments in the theory of democracy and educational controversy. In particular he considers the relevance of differing interpretations of democracy to the following questions: the defence of selection, the extension of private education, the function of education as an instrument of oppression, the democratisation of educational institutions, and the development of a form of specifically political education in schools. The importance of an understanding of political and social issues for educational practice at school and classroom level is emphasized from the outset.
