Value Creating Education and the Capability Approach: A Comparative Analysis of Soka Education's Facility to Promote Well-Being and Social Justice
Sherman, Paul David
Cogent Education, v3 n1 Article 1138575 2016
The relatively unfamiliar pedagogy of Soka (value creating) education is analysed for its capacity to promote well-being and social justice, using the well-known Capability Approach (CA) as a comparator. Various aspects of Soka education correspond favourably with the CA, indicating its potential as a credible and constructive approach for facilitating improved quality of life for individuals and communities. Diverse practical applications of Soka education illustrate how its principles are actualized in advancing social justice issues. Empirical research on Soka education is suggested to investigate its assertions that the pursuit of value creation leads to happiness and well-being.
