Education is a social practice that poses ethical questions of policy and practice at every level and at almost every turn - what we teach, how we teach, how we organise educational provision, how we research it, who controls it, and what principles drive policy nationally and internationally. This collection is rooted in the author’s experience in the education system nationally and internationally over half a century, and reflects both the educational history of this period and the author’s experience as a teacher, parent, school governor, teacher trainer, educational researcher, senior leader in higher education, and advisor to governments in many parts of the world.
It is, then, historically located, but the approach to ethical questions is primarily in the tradition of analytic philosophy, and applied and situated ethics.
Author: Professor David Bridges has worked in multiple roles in education for over half a century: as a teacher, teacher educator, researcher and in senior roles as Deputy Principal of Homerton College Cambridge, Dean of Education and Pro Vice chancellor of the University of East Anglia, Director of the Von Hügel Institute at St Edmund’s College Cambridge and of the Association of Universities in the East of England, and most recently as Director of Research at the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education. He has been advisor at Ministerial level in countries, including Ethiopia, Vietnam. Iran and most recently Mongolia and Kazakhstan. Throughout this time, he has maintained his writing in philosophy of education, reflecting in particular on the ethical issues that this experience has raised. He is an Honorary Vice President of the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain, a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences and was on the Councils of both the European Education Research Association and the British Education Research Association, for which he chaired a review of its ethical code. He was twice a member of the UK Research Assessment Panel for Education.
