Beautiful Risk of Education, Hardback Book

Beautiful Risk of Education Hardback

Description

This is a book about what many teachers know but are increasingly being prevented from talking about: that real education always involves a risk.

The risk is there because, as W. B. Yeats has put it, education is not about filling a bucket but about lighting a fire.

It is there because students are not to be seen as objects to be moulded and disciplined, but as subjects of action and responsibility.

The Beautiful Risk of Education is organised around a critical discussion of seven key educational concepts: creativity, communication, teaching, learning, emancipation, democracy, and virtuosity. By opposing the risk aversion that characterises many contemporary educational policies and practices, Gert J.J.

Biesta makes a strong argument for giving risk a central place in our educational endeavours and brings risk taking to the forefront of a critical pedagogical practice.
