Overview

This text features the original version of Purpel's (U. of North Carolina, Greensboro) 1989 work, The Moral and Spiritual Crisis in Education—including the introduction by Henry Giroux and Paolo Freire—followed by extensive commentary in which Purpel and McLaurin (a former student of Purpel's) affirm, modify, and extend the analyses of each of the sections of the original edition within the context of contemporary American education. The text concludes with two chapters, one by Purpel and one by McLaurin, in which each author offers his thoughts on how to deal with the spiritual crisis in American education today.
