Rights-Based Education: Towards a Local Democratic Project
Cruddas, Leora
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v53 n3 p403-406 2011
This article offers a dialogic engagement with Fielding & Moss's "Radical Education and the Common School" (2011). First, the author puts forward a critical and reflective narrative on the process in the London Borough of Waltham Forest to create a strategic children and young people plan, which she cautiously proposes is an attempt to define a local democratic project--rights-based education. She then goes on to explore whether a local authority and a community or "commonwealth" of schools can act together--possibly in radical collegiality--to further democratic education locally.
