eD 32 Doing Difference Differently: God, Grace and Equality in Education (2017)


What does it mean to treat pupils across their differences equally in education? Is it about seeking equal attainment or assuming they are created equal—or is it primarily about treating them as equally created?

This fascinating study explores what a distinctively Christian approach to handling difference looks like, including a robust critique of utilitarian and economic models and a focus on wisdom rather than knowledge as the goal of education.
