Summary
Since A Nation at Risk in 1983, the problem of education in the United States has occupied a prominent space in the media, in the halls of government, and in the lives of those most involved in schools. After twenty-five years of inquiry, experimentation, debate and legislation such as No Child Left Behind, the problems seem as insoluble now as then. Education's Highest Aim presents the thoughts and experiences of researchers, students, teachers, administrators, parents, and other stakeholders who have applied a theoretical and practical framework derived from Chiara Lubich's spirituality of communion to their various scenes of teaching and learning. Education's Highest Aim offers proven and effective ways of dealing with the problematic realities found in primary, elementary, secondary, and university education. Education's Highest Aim includes chapters that present: * tensions inherent in understanding moral identity in the field of education * the principal features of an education of communion, and its relevance in the contemporary educational milieu * the history of the Focolare Movement and education * case studies that illustrate strategies for negotiating the basic tensions in the educational experience * accounts of successful elementary, secondary, and post-secondary schools organized around the basic principles of an education of communion * primary sources concerning an education of communion Education's Highest Aim will be valuable for anyone interested in understanding and improving education: teachers' groups; school administrators; university courses in curriculum, instruction, or educational foundations; parents' organizations; developers of public policy
