This book has a markedly different style to the empirically grounded works by Storr and Casson just considered. The author, Caldecott, takes as his premise general concerns about the dire situation of state education. He is convinced that this is ultimately rooted in the widespread belief that there are no objective truths and that there is a plurality of subjective preferences that deserve equal respect. In response to this situation Caldecott presents what he describes as a Catholic philosophy of education.
