Planning Education in and After Emergencies. Fundamentals of Educational Planning.
Sinclair, Margaret
An issue causing debate in the area of educational planning is the question of how and why education should be adapted in situations of emergency, crisis, or disaster. This book contends that education is paramount in such circumstances. Using examples of recent events and real-life testimonies, the book highlights the needs of crisis-stricken communities. It emphasizes the important role that education can play in instilling social and ethical values in the minds of youth and in teaching appropriate behavior when reacting to disasters. Chapter titles reflect the book's contents: (1) "What Is 'Emergency Education'?"; (2) "Dimensions of the Problem"; (3) "Some Frequently Asked Questions"; (4) "Access to Education and Related Activities in Situations of Crisis and Recovery"; (5)"Resources for Education in Crisis and Recovery"; (6) "Special Features of Education in Crisis and Recovery"; (7) "Co-ordination and Capacity-Building"; (8) "Applying These Principles: The Government Perspective"; (9) "The Government Perspective: Facing Reconstruction"; (10) "Applying These Principles: Perspective of Other Actors"; and (11) "Reflections and Concluding Remarks."
