In Defence Of The School. A Public Issue
by Jan Masschelein & Maarten Simons
As a painfully outdated institution the school is accused of many things. This book advocates the acquittal of the school. This defence of the school starts from an investigation of what makes a school a school and pinpoints why the school has value in and of itself. It reveals the various attempts to rob the school of its scholastic character, that is, to tame the school.
