Jean François Millet, The First Steps

Education: First Steps

Education: Issue One

A child has to be “brought up,” and “led out” into the world. But what does this mean against the dominant backdrop of calling into question the essential features of childhood? What exactly is the child’s relation to the world, and how exactly is that relation mediated by the “first educators” of the child, his or her parents? The answer to these questions will determine what we intend when we educate and what it is we are aiming at in bringing a child to adulthood.
