Immoral Education
By:Simon Gibbs
Published on 2018-04-09 by Routledge

This book brings together for the first time a synthesis of philosophical and psychological material to examine the basis for the professional identity that teachers might believe in, and the effects of misunderstanding and mistreating these beliefs. By critically synthesising findings from a range of sources, the book provides a rationale that argues an essential ingredient of good education is the quality of teachers who have a reaffirmed sense of creativity, autonomy and agency. The book presents a role for educational?psychology in informing educational and inclusive processes, filling a longstanding need for a text that delineates the way psychological phenomena underpin education. Beginning by considering notions of ‘self’ and ‘identity’, the book explores the relationship between our identity as defined by ourselves, but also as defined by others in the social and professional?groups we may or may not be considered as being part of. It looks critically at how the erosion of the professional identity of teachers has affected education, and considers the morality of ‘othering’ ‘others’ and its damaging effect on teachers and?young people. Gibbs reflects on the organisational structure and leadership of schools, the psychology of these institutions, and the barriers that need to be overcome in order to promote greater inclusivity within them. Offering a careful and insightful look at the psychology behind education and teaching, this is an essential read for?teacher educators, researchers and academics in the field of education and will appeal to policy makers, teachers and educational psychologists.
