    This is a very good book! Noddings is a contemporary thinker in the field of education. She is primarily a math teacher, and she has a PhD but she also has 10 kids, 5 adopted. She had written a number of books about caring. Here are some of the arguments she makes in this one: -Care ethics is more effective than character education -People need to learn to care and to be cared for -Every teacher is a moral educator whether or not s/he intends to be. - Moral education should be an intentional part o This is a very good book!

Here are some of the arguments she makes in this one: -Care ethics is more effective than character education -People need to learn to care and to be cared for -Every teacher is a moral educator whether or not s/he intends to be. - Moral education should be an intentional part of schooling. - Schools should be reconstructed as multipurpose institutions -controversial issues should not be avoided in school, but rather stirring arguments can be presented from both sides and the discussion that follows is the foundation for critical thinking -currently, inclusion of women in education is trying to fit them into a male framework. This is not acceptable. - need a real place for women's understandings, knowledge, and women's traditions in school - stories are a strong educational tool -caring for is different and more effective than caring about -there is a false need for greater academic training. Instead we need to care for children, reduce violence, respect honest work, reward excellence at every level, ensure a place for everyone in economic and social world, produce people who can care competently and contribute effectively to communities -conversation of all types is beneficial in schooling

    A quick read at under 150 pages, but most of it seemed obvious to me. I liked the message, but the book didn't engage me as much as I'd hoped.
