Paradoxes & Praxis: The 21st Century Imperative for Educational Foundations


Given your vision of education, how might you answer these questions?

Do you attend to the needs of many students or an individual student?

Would you educate for the potential of the individual or the society?

Do you focus on the means (how to educate) or the ends (goals of education)?

Would the majority or minority make educational decisions in your vision?

Do you individualize curricula or standardized a curriculum for students?

Does your curriculum draw on the past or prepare for the future?

Would your education privilege some or enhance equity?
…. the poor or rich, the influential or ignored, the common or elite?

Would your education form the society or result from society?
