    Cultural Diversity, Liberal Pluralism and Schools: Isaiah Berlin and Education.Neil Burtonwood - 2006 - Routledge.
    Culturally diverse liberal democracies on both sides of the Atlantic are currently faced with serious questions about the education of their future citizens. What is the balance between the need for social cohesion, and at the same time dealing justly with the demands for exemptions and accommodations from cultural and religious minorities? In contemporary Britain, the importance of this question has been recently highlighted by the concern to develop political and educational strategies capable of countering the influence of extremist voices, (...)

    Must Liberal Support for Separate Schools Be Subject to a Condition of Individual Autonomy?Neil Burtonwood - 2000 - British Journal of Educational Studies 48 (3):269-284.
    A liberal state based on propositions about the desirability of individual autonomy is bound to be committed to educational programmes which are incompatible with the beliefs and values of parents from non- liberal religious and cultural minorities. One response to this has been support for public funding of those separate schools which offer an education culturally congruent with the values of parents in non- liberal communities. To resolve the potential threat to liberal individualist ideals a condition of support for individual (...)

    Liberalism and Communitarianism: A Response to Two Recent Attempts to Reconcile Individual Autonomy with Group Identity.Neil Burtonwood - 1998 - Educational Studies 24 (3):295-304.
    Summary This article is concerned with recent attempts to balance the claims for political citizenship in a liberal democracy (liberalism) with competing claims for cultural identity within traditional non?liberal communities (communitarianism). Claims of the first kind are usually seen as universal in that they are based on what it is to be human, while claims of the second kind are seen as particular in so far as they relate to membership of a specific culture. Singh (1997) argues for discussion method (...)

    Political Philosophy and the Lessons for Faith-Based Schools.Neil Burtonwood - 2002 - Educational Studies 28 (3):239-252.
    What does the political philosophy of the last two decades have to teach that might shed light on proposals to increase the number and diversify the types of faith-based community schools? Liberal educators have often expressed concern about the apparent parochialism of faith-based education and favoured instead a more cosmopolitan version of education which aims to take individuals beyond the boundaries of the here and now. In this paper I shall examine ways in which political philosophers have responded to the (...)
