I agree. Habermas is excellent resource for philosophy of education. I -
with my colleague Hannu Heikkinen - have applied Habermas to the
educational action research theory in article "Action research in the
light of Jürgen Habermas's theory of communicative action and discourse
theory of justice". It has been puböishen in Curriculum Studies vol. 6
(1998): 3. I have also put in into to net:

I have also made aticle on Robert Young's critical theory of education
("Robert Young's Habermasian concept of indoctrination) . Referee's of
Australian Journal of Education are reading it right now. If anybody is
interest in that article, I can sent it by attachmet file.
