Give Peace a Chance: The Diminution of Peace in Global Education in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada
Cook, Sharon Anne
Canadian Journal of Education, v31 n4 p889-914 2008
This study surveyed the literature on peace and global education in secondary schools to explore the position of peace education within the global education field. To create a database from Canada, the United States, and Britain, this article includes secondary studies from professional and peer-reviewed periodicals, articles in published collections, monographs, and textbooks. The results demonstrate that peace education over time has occupied progressively less space. The nature of both peace and global education in the school curriculum has changed. The reduction of peace education within the global education rubric has negative consequences for everyone committed to the principles of global and peace education. (Contains 5 notes.)
