Are There Children to Educate for Peace in Conflict-Ridden Areas? A Critical Essay on Peace and Coexistence Education
Intercultural Education, v16 n3 p235-245 Aug 2005
In this paper, I reflect on the education that is being conducted in two Israeli schools, often held up as exemplary, that have the declared educational aim of cultivating tolerance and recognition of otherness. What is "going on" with those presumed to be the primary beneficiaries (the children studying at these schools) of an integrated educational enterprise? Should the focus for future peace be on these children at all. I take a critical look at the way we are attempting to forge a peaceful future through our young.
