  3. The 'False Dualism' of Educational Research.Richard Pring - 2000 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 34 (2):247–260.
    Educational research is being subject to damaging criticism from both outside and within the research community. The external critics are impatient of research which does not give evidence‐based answers to the questions they ask. The internal critics condemn the very research which seeks to provide those answers. These differences are reflected in the rigid distinction between quantitative and qualitative research. This paper questions the philosophical positions on which such a distinction relies.

    The Importance of Being Thorough: On Systematic Accumulations of 'What Works' in Education Research.Alis Oancea & Richard Pring - 2008 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 42 (s1):15-39.
    This article outlines and appraises the considerable criticism of educational research, both in the United Kingdom and in North America, and shows how it has pointed to a narrowing of what counts as good or worthwhile research in the policy discourse. In particular, this involved prioritising research that purports to show clearly and unmistakably 'what works', and institutionalising this view of research in a range of centres that receive official approval. The article, though recognising the fruit of such centres, challenges (...)

  6. Education as a Moral Practice.Richard Pring - 2001 - Journal of Moral Education 30 (2):101-112.
    The interest in moral education has focused largely on the teaching of morality or on nurturing moral qualities and virtues or on the "moral atmosphere" of the school; but little, comparatively speaking, has been written about education itself as essentially a moral practice. Failure, in this respect, has damaging results. First, the practice of education goes adrift from its moral roots ? and serves particular ends such as economic well-being or citizenship as conceived by those in power. Secondly, the programmes (...)

    Return to the Crossroads: Maritain Fifty Years On.David Carr, John Haldane, Terence McLaughlin & Richard Pring - 1995 - British Journal of Educational Studies 43 (2):162 - 178.
    Writing a little over a decade ago of developments in educational philosophy, R. F. Dearden remarked on the dearth of alternative approaches to that of conceptual analysis which predominated, at least in Anglophone cultures, at that time. One possible avenue of enquiry which he identified as conspicuously absent in this respect was the development of a distinctively Catholic approach to problems of educational philosophy, observing that a work of the mid-war years, Maritain's Education at the Crossroads (1943), appeared to be (...)

    The article draws upon the work of two people, Lawrence Stenhouse and Derek Morrell, who in the 1960s offered a vision of education based upon,first, the moral conviction that a liberal and humane education was essential for all and for society, second, the belief in a curriculum agenda in which such moral conviction might be reconciled with moral uncertainty, and, third, the recognition of the indispensability of a democratic approach to making that reconciliation possible. The article shows how that vision (...)

  29. Liberalism, Education and Schooling: Essays by T.M. Mclaughlin.David Carr, Mark Halstead & Richard Pring (eds.) - 2008 - Imprint Academic.
    Terry McLaughlin's sudden death in 2006 deprived the academic world of a leading British philosopher of education, and the author himself of the opportunity to publish a planned synthesis of his work. This volume brings together a collection of his essays from a variety of leading journals. They have been selected by former colleagues well-acquainted with his thinking to celebrate his work and make it available in a convenient and accessible form.
