Education for Peace and Justice
Elias, John L.
Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, v9 n2 p160-177 Dec 2005
This article explores theoretical and practical issues related to education for peace and justice. It briefly presents educational theories of Plato, Aristotle, John Dewey, and Paulo Freire, recent papal and conciliar teachings, and the work of prominent religious educators. The power of education for aiding in justice and peace education is shown through guiding principles, curricular and methodological arrangements, ways of handling controversial issues, and the effective use of the arts.
