Values education

Values in teacher education: selected published papers, conference papers and reviews’ by Nick Mead was recently acquired by the IOE library when the author popped in to donate some copies to us. This publication brings together an interesting bulk of work on ‘values education’, an area which is central to concepts of schooling and the ‘hidden’ curriculum.

Based on recent research and legislation, this publication aims to address a gap in comprehensive representative information on values education within teacher training. Although subjects such as Citizenship, Personal studies and Religious Studies have attempted to address the subject, there has been little consistency in how it is taught and no definitive subject area to which it belongs. Consequently, values education has remained a largely nebulous concept in the UK- an oversight which this publication seeks to redress. If you are interested in this important aspect of education, why not borrow Nick’s book and gain a greater insight into this topic.
