Reading for Meaning: Problematizing Inclusion in Indonesian Civic Education
Fearnley-Sander, Mary; Moss, Julianne; Harbon, Lesley
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v8 n2 p203-219 2004
This paper reports on the use of the "Index for Inclusion" in five socioeconomically different primary school contexts in Indonesia. The research was designed and developed through Australian and Indonesian teachers and teacher educators collaborative efforts over a year. The work took place during the post-Suharto reform period and focuses on the field of Civics education. The research examines what the ethic of inclusion means to teachers participating in political and educational democratization as they attempt to embrace and develop citizenship classroom practices that feature respect for difference. The theoretical interest is in both citizenship theory and inclusion; showing how the civic cultures of school and nation intersect; and the implications of that intersection for inclusion theory and cross-cultural theorizing of inclusion more broadly. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
