The sublime face of just education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

I choose this sentence as a sketch of justice drawn by lines of skepticism and romanticism. The realm of education demands our awareness, as teachers and students, of the need to judge while remembering the unevenness of lives and fortunes, in order that the hopes of others should not wither. Such awareness is to be played out in a world where our knowledge of all possible situations and events, and of those we share that knowledge with, is vital to the success of our own endeavors and those for whom we are responsible. Yet such knowing is plagued with uncertainty. We are called on to judge blind: in darkness. Laughter and worry haunt our judgments.
