Abstract

[If care provides an ethical, epistemological, and ontological basis for schooling, what more is there to add? Relatively formal education happens in many places, and care is relevant to them all. But schools are learning communities—with the word ‘community’ having a specific meaning. My claim is not initially ‘normative’ (it is not about what schools ‘should’ be), and is not conventionally ‘empirical’ (it is not based on evidence about how schools work). It is a claim initially made on the basis of what makes most sense of the words ‘school’ and ‘community’. This chapter provides a portrait of schools as communities (in John Macmurray’s sense) that bridges care ethics and dialogue, in which we learn community in and through community.]
