"While contemporary philosophical work on the importance of education has often resorted to Rawls’s theory to argue for one type or another of educational policy, most of it has done so by reading Rawls in a rather selective and piecemeal manner. Costa’s aim, in contrast, is to develop an integrated and systematic exploration of the implications that the theory of ‘justice as fairness’ has for education for citizenship. ... Costa’s book is a valuable addition to both Rawlsian and civic education scholarship."
