Description - Human Rights, Education and Global Responsibilities by
One of the major problems facing societies, in almost all parts of the world, is the inadequate accommodation of social equity with cultural diversity. The crisis emanating from neglect of this issue can be seen in all societies. The lack of discourse between the two systems, cultural and social, means that there are fewer shared ideologies, on the basis of which accommodations can be negotiated. The inadequacy of those responses is the issue addressed by this series of books. It seeks to contribute, through joint publication and the stimulation of greater discourse, to identify the pathways to a less selfish and parochial response to the continuing dilemma of equity and diversity. In this fourth volume there are two major foci within the field of education and schooling; human rights and global responsibilities. The authors review, critically discuss and seek to extend the theoretical and ideological assumptions, underlying policy and practice in their chosen field, within the context of these two foci.
The aim of their testimony is to place the life experience of teachers and children within a more globally responsible and world-sensitive context, drawing out the connections between personal, local, national and international analyses and initiatives, and seeking a continual rebalancing and social accommodation, between the poles of unity and diversity, homogeneity and heterogeneity, cohesion and fragmentation.
