Overview

In Teaching Values, Ron Scapp wrests the discussion of values and values-based education away from traditionalists who have long dominated educational debates. While challenging the Right's domination of the discussion of values education, Scapp examines some issues not typically raised by educators and critics on the Left, including the positive role of citizenship and national identity in U.S. education and culture.

    An Important and Timely Book

    Ron Scapp's Teaching Values is an important book not only for providing a progressive vision for character education but also for defending critical multiculturalism at a time when conservatives such as Lynn Cheney and William Bennett claim character education as little more than jingoistic patriotism understood as following orders and eradicating difference. Scapp's book is not only important but is a pleasure to read filled with stories that colorfully illustrate his points.
