JSI Seminar: What is the point of going to school?
JSI seminar: What is the point of going to school?
Is there an interest that children have, qua children, which is uniquely or best served by their going to school? In the paper that Dr Luara Ferracioli will present at this seminar, she and Dr Ryan Cox argue that there is: it is the interest that children have in establishing and maintaining a form of civic friendship with their fellow child citizens. They argue that this is an interest that children have, qua children, that is uniquely served by their going to school. Moreover, they argue that it may well be an interest which is best served by children going to public school rather than private school.
