Teaching character and virtue in schools

James Arthur, Kristján Kristjánsson, Tom Harrison, Wouter Sanderse, Dan Wright

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Teaching Character and Virtue in Schools addresses the contemporary issues of quantification and measurement in educational settings. The authors draw on the research of the Jubilee Centre at the University of Birmingham in order to investigate the concern that the conventional wisdom, sound judgement and professional discretion of teachers is being diminished and control mistakenly given over to administrators, policymakers and inspectors which in turn is negatively effecting pupils’ character development.
