"Weaving together history, philosophy, and curriculum, Grappling with the Good offers a vision of public education in which students learn to engage respectfully with the diversity of beliefs about how to live together in society. Robert Kunzman argues that we can and should help students learn how to talk about religion and morality, and bring together our differing visions of life. He describes how such an approach might work in the K-12 setting, explores central philosophical principles, and shares his ongoing experiences and insights in helping students to "grapple with the good.""--BOOK JACKET.
