This book challenges the traditional organization of high school studies around the academic disciplines. Noddings argues that such emphasis shortchanges not only the noncollege-bound whose interests are almost ignored, but even those who are preparing for college. The latter receive schooling for the head but little for the heart and soul. Noddings counteracts this condition, insisting that our aim should be to encourage the growth of competent, caring, loving and lovable persons, a moral priority that our educational system ignores.

After a decade of educational reforms, The Challenge to Care in Schools is even more relevant now than when it was first published. In her new Introduction, Nel Noddings revisits her seminal book and places care as central to current debates on standardization, accountability, privatization, and the continuous struggle between traditional and progressive methods of education. Rather then forcing one side to yield to the other, this book advocates an alternative “responsive system” that will allow the best ideas to flourish.

In the Second Edition, Noddings once again envisions a school system built on the idea that different people have different strengths, and that these strengths should be cultivated in an environment of caring, not of competition. She suggests that if we make the responsiveness characteristic of caring more basic than accountability, we can accommodate both traditional and progressive preferences in one school system to the benefit of all…especially the children.

Chapters address the practical and theoretical questions involved in organizing traditional and nontraditional areas of study around themes of care. Introductory chapters focus on caring in general and on the problems of liberal education, while the final chapter offers sound advice for implementing a caring curriculum in our schools.

Praise for the First Edition!

"A welcome addition to the often fragmented discussion of what children need and what school and education should be."

―Harvard Educational Review

"I recommend this book to all concerned about education, personally and/or professionally."

―Journal of Moral Education

"In the morass of school reform that calls for such changes as national standards, improved assessments, and new ways of organizing schooling, Noddings provides lucid thinking about the priorities we ought to consider."

―Teachers College Record

This is a wonderful book! I would like to recommend it to all educators and parents. Noddings' vision of education is so grounded in life experience and it has a quality that speaks not only mind but the heart as well. Especially at this time when we face social, political challenges and when education reforms has been such a mess, Nodding's idea could probably help to see the problems deeper and reconnect with a vision of education that lead to human flourishment not at the cost of others, fellow citizens, developing countries, plants, animals and the Earth. She's both visionary and humane in a way that is very grounded in the basic emotions, yearnings and motivations of human being.
This books also lead time to read other books by Noddings. Such as Peace Education--How we come to love and hate war. So insightful. She's brave to walk into the jungle of war, destructions, patriotism, religion and the psychology related to war, and at the same time so kind to understand all the extremes, polarities and paradox in war.

Excellent book, great reading. Recommended to all educators!
interesting but unrealistic recommendations to change focus of curriculum in education; quotes Dewey quite a bit; easy to read, required for a class
