Learning to Be Equal

Learning to Be Equal

Just Schools as Schools of Justice

(p.62) Chapter 3 Learning to Be Equal
Education, Justice, and Democracy

Anthony Simon Laden

University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the need for schools to teach children how to be equal, in addition to teaching them that they are equal or what follows from their being equal, and argues that the relevant picture of justice, especially when one is thinking about the place of education in democracy, is relational, not distributive. The pressing question for education in democracy is to develop a system of education that fosters equal standing as citizens.
