Voices of Home and School on Democracy and Human Rights Education at the Primary Level: A Case Study
Gondogdu, Kerim; Yildirim, Ali
Asia Pacific Education Review, v11 n4 p525-532 Dec 2010
The purpose of this research was to investigate the perceptions of home and school concerning ideally implemented primary democracy and human rights education. In this qualitative study, data were collected from six voluntary classroom teachers and 16 parents in a selected school through interviews. The results of the interview yielded five major themes: physical and environmental issues, instructional process, teacher characteristics, assessment practices, and communication patterns for teaching democracy and human rights ideally. Most of the participants also indicated the lack of partnership between home and school. The results showed that there are gaps between the existing and desired conditions of democracy and human rights education in schools. (Contains 1 table.)
