Spirituality and Education introduces the basic contours of current debate in a form accessible to both classroom teachers across the curriculum range, and to school managers. It covers all key areas, including:
* problems of defining spirituality
*
government legislation and supporting documentation
*
relevant empirical research
*
the social dimension of spirituality
*
secular and religious manifestations of spirituality in contemporary society
* theories of childhood spiritual development
* contemporary approaches to spiritual education, including collective worship and cross-curricular teaching.
A variety of different perspectives and approaches will be offered, and readers are encouraged to be reflective through a number of tasks which relate all issues raised directly back to their own specific circumstances. The author includes questions, quotes and lists of further reading.

Here's what you say about us...

'This is a significant book which will certainly become a standard text for spiritual education in British schools. Wright has thought more carefully than most about the theoretical issues at stake in these debates.' - Jeff Astley, International Journal of Education and Religion

'Andrew Wright ... offers a masterly introduction to a topic that is in danger of becoming obscured by ambiguity, confusion, diversity and incompatible yet hidden assumptions. His book is a model of clarity and balance, aided by soud organization and a very helpful layout ... It makes a major contribution to the field and can be recommended without hesitation to all those interested in spirituality and education.' - John Sullivan, Heythrop Journal, July 2002
