"This text seeks to re-establish the place and the importance of a valuesbased,
philosophically-underpinned, national educational provision, through
which reason and integrity, intellect and morality, caring and sharing, are more
highly valued as educational outcomes than are narrow academic achievements
only, leading to ways and means for accruing power and material possessions.
The text will be confronting to some in that it challenges the following:
governments to re-conceive the purposes of education and of schooling; schools
and their societies to more carefully evaluate their educational structures and
processes; teachers to re-consider the breadth and assessment of curricular;
and society in general to demand from politicians, suffi cient and appropriate
economic and intellectual support to and for every school."
