Voluntary Standards for Peace Education
Carter, Candice C.
Journal of Peace Education, v5 n2 p141-155 Sep 2008
Peace education is comprehensive. It encompasses instruction by all members of a school. These standards, which were recommended by researchers and practitioners from many areas of the world, prescribe comprehensive and simultaneous instruction with informal as well as formal curriculum. Although the voluntary standards are a response to neoliberal policies in the field of education, they were born of enduring concepts along with research on educational practice and peace development. As the international community and its various schools grapple with several types of violence, comprehensive peace education provides student preparation for responsible stewardship through an enacted vision of a better world. Included in this article are recommendations for providing such transformative education. The standards that embody those recommendations have been aids to instructors who implement peace education.
