Radical Education and the Common School is a truly thoughtful book.

Radical Education and the Common School is a truly thoughtful book. It combines powerful social and educational criticism with a sensitivity to powerful possibility. Every now and then there comes book on education to make the blood course through your veins and steel your resolve that ‘It doesn’t have to be like it is’; you know after reading it that something else better is possible. Written with passion and incisiveness in equal measure, it will lift the spirits and re-energise all who are engaged in education not simply as a means of earning a living but as a way of changing the world for the better.

Radical education, they say, should be practiced in the ‘common school’, a school for all children in its local catchment .

Radical education, they say, should be practiced in the ‘common school’, a school for all children in its local catchment area, age-integrated, human scale, focused on depth of learning and based on team working. A school understood as a public space for all citizens, a collective workshop of many purposes and possibilities, and a person-centred learning community, working closely with other schools and with local authorities. The book concludes by examining how we might bring such transformation about.

Michael Fielding, Peter Moss. What is education, what is it for and what are its fundamental values? How do we understand knowledge and learning? What is our image of the child and the school? How does the ever more pressing need to develop a more just, creative and sustainable democratic society affect our responses to these questions? Addressing these fundamental issues, Fielding and Moss contest the current mainstream dominated by markets and competition, instrumentality and standardisation, managerialism and technical practice.

Today, in education, from top to bottom, pre-school through university, public and private, small and large, teachers find themselves confronted by a seemingly unquestionable new form of top down managerialism, and neoliberal corporate style of decision making. While schools have always been, more or less, venues defined by asymmetric power relations, the current situation appears to be a unique departure from that tradition.

What is education, what is it for and what are its fundamental values? How do we understand knowledge and learning? What is our image of the child and the school? How does the ever more pressing need to develop a more just, creative and sustainable democratic society affect our responses to these questions?

Addressing these fundamental issues,Fielding and Mosscontest the current mainstream dominated by markets and competition, instrumentality and standardisation, managerialism and technical practice. They argue insteadfor a radical education with democracy as a fundamental value, care as a central ethic, a person-centred education that is education in the broadest sense, and an image of a child rich in potential. Radical education, they say,should be practiced in the ‘common school’, a school for all children in its local catchment area, age-integrated, human scale, focused on depth of learning and based on team working. A school understood as a public space for all citizens, a collective workshop of many purposes and possibilities, and a person-centred learning community, working closely with other schools and with local authorities. The book concludes by examining how we might bring such transformation about.

Written by two of the leading experts in the fields of early childhood and secondary education, the book covers a wide vista of education for children and young people. Vivid examples from different stages of education are used to explore the full meaning of radical democratic education and the common school and how they can work in practice. It connects rich thinking and experiences from the past and present to offer direction and hope for the future. It will be of interest and inspiration to all who care about education - teachers and students, academics and policy makers, parents and politicians.
