The Difficulties of Peace Education. Peace Education Miniprints No. 17.
Many teachers feel uncertain when given the task of teaching peace education because of the relative novelty and controversial character of this field. This document examines some of the difficulties and obstacles involved in peace education. First, various views of society, the school, and the change process are reviewed in relation to peace education efforts. Then, more specific barriers are discussed, using examples from the Malmo School of Education project, "Preparedness for Peace." Finally, certain measures aimed at coming to terms with the difficulties are outlined. A 22-item list of references is included. (Author/DB)
