Education for Peace: What It Entails.
Mercieca, Charles
How peace can be "enforced" on an entire generation through education is discussed. The goals of education for peace are several. For example, it would enable people to cope with issues of modern society, help them develop an understanding of different cultures, and prepare them to actively participate in the governmental policy-making process. To become peace loving, a person must go through a series of socialization steps, e.g., reduction of aggression, elimination of general tension, courage to deal with conflicts. Education for peace has many general characteristics. For example, it must be pluralistic and involve every sector of the community. There should be various educational experiments apart from the traditional school. The classroom environment needs to undergo radical changes. Teaching methods need to encourage student participation and interaction as well as the use of a variety of teaching media. The shortest way to the achievement of the full objectives of peace education is to have community agencies participate in a seminar on the promotion of international understanding. The content of such a seminar is described. (RM)
