Riassunto: Vying For Our Children takes a timely and critical look at New Zealand's school curricula and examines the very roots of the philosophies that underpin them. It shows how a number of ideologies compete to influence educational policy and curricular content, and clearly identifies the influence of each. Paul Henderson shows how traditional values have been largely swept aside in an unholy alliance between economic reductionism and neo-Marxism, and calls for a revised curriculum which panders less to transient fashions and social engineering. The book concludes with some thought-provoking recommendations and is essential reading for all who are seriously interested in today's key issues in education.
L'autore: Paul Henderson is a writer and researcher for Maxim Institute. He was born in the UK, educated at Ampleforth College and is a graduate of Aberdeen and Cambridge Universities.
