Where Do You Stand on the Philosophy Spectrum

The following continuum reflects the range of philosophical beliefs about schools and the roles of teachers and students in the process of education. In the chapter, we discuss each of these philosophical positions, and we also provide you with a self-inventory to sort out your own views. Now it is time to graphically represent your beliefs, and view the preferences of other students taking this class around the nation. Indicate where you see yourself on the spectrum, and then compare your position with those of others.
