Debates about education go far beyond the classroom and consider the way an understanding of education affects the human condition, while placing an emphasis on the advancement of society. Some of the questions our authors raise are: what kind of education is appropriate for a free society, how should it be funded, what role should the state play, what should individuals be taught in order to make them good citizens, and how should individuals be taught?
