    The Institutional Autonomy of Education.David Blacker - 2000 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 34 (2):229–246.
    This paper develops a liberal contextualist account of schooling that balances institutional autonomy with public accountability under conditions of reasonable pluralism. First a conceptual obstacle is discussed: the tendency to conceive educational autonomy according to the false dilemma of instrumentalism versus non‐instrumentalism. Then an alternative is advanced—the contextualist picture—that places education's institutional autonomy in its proper light. The conclusion raises and then responds to important objections to the contextualist picture.

    Civic Friendship and Democratic Education.David Blacker - 2003 - In Kevin McDonough & Walter Feinberg (eds.), Citizenship and Education in Liberal-Democratic Societies: Teaching for Cosmopolitan Values and Collective Identities. Oxford University Press.
    This is the third of the four essays in Part II of the book on liberalism and traditionalist education; all four are by authors who would like to find ways for the liberal state to honour the self-definitions of traditional cultures and to find ways of avoiding a confrontation with differences. David Blacker’s essay on civic friendship and democratic education develops a Rawlsian conception of civic friendship, the scaffolding of which is necessarily provided by the wide range of comprehensive conceptions (...)

    An Unreasonable Argument Against Student Free Speech.David Blacker - 2009 - Educational Theory 59 (2):123-143.
    The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent opinion in Morse v. Frederick , perhaps better known as the “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” case, contains a widely reported concurrence by Justice Clarence Thomas. Challenging well‐established precedent, Thomas argues that students should have no constitutional rights in school. In this essay David Blacker argues that, while philosophically interesting, Thomas’s argument is unreasonable on legal hermeneutic grounds and should therefore be rejected, even by those who may be sympathetic to its conclusions. Toward his own argument, (...)
