Moral Outrage in Education

Synopsis

David E. Purpel is one of the most important theorists writing about education today. In this new collection of works, we are given intimate views of his perspectives on topics ranging from social justice and education to service learning. However, Purpel does far more than analyze issues. Beneath the polished surface of his writing lies a powerful, moral voice that engages readers and challenges them to question their basic assumptions about modern education and our society. His writing evokes a disturbingly emotional, as well as intellectual, response. To read these essays is to be brought into the same world of Kozol and Freire, but through a different door.
