    The Demands of Liberal Education.Meira Levinson - 1999 - Oxford University Press UK.
    The Demands of Liberal Education analyses and applies contemporary liberal political theory to certain key problems within the field of educational theory. Levinson examines problems centred around determining appropriate educational aims, content and institutional structure and argues that liberal governments should exercise a much greater control over education than they now do. Combining theoretical with empirical research, this book will interest and provoke scholars, policy makers, educators, parents, and all citizens interested in education politics.

    Dilemmas of Educational Ethics: Cases and Commentaries.Meira Levinson & Jacob Fay (eds.) - 2016 - Harvard Education Press.
    Educators and policy makers confront challenging questions of ethics, justice, and equity on a regular basis. Should teachers retain a struggling student if it means she will most certainly drop out? Should an assignment plan favor middle-class families if it means strengthening the school system for all? These everyday dilemmas are both utterly ordinary and immensely challenging, yet there are few opportunities and resources to help educators think through the ethical issues at stake. Drawing on research and methods developed in (...)

    Democratic Discord in Schools: Cases and Commentaries in Educational Ethics.Meira Levinson & Jacob Fay (eds.) - 2019 - Harvard Education Press.
    _Teaching in a democracy is challenging and filled with dilemmas that have no easy answers._ For example, how do educators meet their responsibilities of teaching civic norms and dispositions while remaining nonpartisan? _Democratic Discord in Schools_ features eight normative cases of complex dilemmas drawn from real events designed to help educators practice the type of collaborative problem solving and civil discourse needed to meet these challenges of democratic education. Each of the cases also features a set of six commentaries written (...)

    Making Civics Count: Citizenship Education for a New Generation.David E. Campbell, Meira Levinson & Frederick M. Hess (eds.) - 2012 - Harvard Education Press.
    "By nearly every measure, Americans are less engaged in their communities and political activity than generations past.” So write the editors of this volume, who survey the current practices and history of citizenship education in the United States. They argue that the current period of “creative destruction”—when schools are closing and opening in response to reform mandates—is an ideal time to take an in-depth look at how successful strategies and programs promote civic education and good citizenship. _Making Civics Count_ offers (...)

    Intentional Collaboration, Predictable Complicity, and Proactive Prevention: U.S. Schools’ Ethical Responsibilities in Slowing the School-to-Deportation Pipeline.Tatiana Geron & Meira Levinson - 2018 - Journal of Global Ethics 14 (1):23-33.
    ABSTRACTIn the United States, constitutional and statutory law reinforce the right of all children to receive an education, regardless of their citizenship or immigration status. In a time of heightened anti-immigrant sentiment and law enforcement, however, partnerships among school districts, local law enforcement, and the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security subject undocumented and unaccompanied minor students to indefensible levels of risk for detention and deportation. We identify three stances that U.S. schools may take in the face of a (...)
