(p.65) 4 The Case for Autonomy‐Facilitating Education
School Choice and Social Justice

Harry Brighouse (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The first potentially powerful objection to school choice is that it might efface the right a child has to personal autonomy. This chapter argues for the right to an autonomy‐facilitating education on the child‐centred grounds that it is highly instrumental for individual flourishing. It also explores the educational requirements of the liberal legitimacy, which dovetail with the demands of an autonomy‐facilitating education. It contrasts these requirements with Amy Gutmann's curricular proposals.

Keywords:   child‐centred education, curriculum, Amy Gutmann, legitimacy, personal autonomy
