Gambescia, Stephen F. – Health Education & Behavior, 2007
While we have several hallmarks of a mature profession, does this include a well-articulated "Philosophy of Health Education?" High-order questions should be important to both practitioners and researchers in health education. This address outlines why it is important for us to have a philosophy of health education, an approach that we could take…

Roholt, Ross VeLure; Hildreth, R. W.; Baizerman, Michael – Child & Youth Services, 2007
Young people say that participation in civic youth work provides a rich experience. From the official perspective, learning is the focus, and most programs call themselves a form of experiential education. Young people do learn something from these initiatives but not always in ways experiential education theory suggests. Data from a study of the…

This paper critically examines contemporary American classroom discourses and tries to understand the effects of the larger social and cultural meanings that have penetrated the discourses. The central question of this article is why the seemingly justified, admirable, and inspiring ideas of child-centeredness and democratic education often result…

Woods, Philip A. – Educational Management Administration & Leadership, 2007
This article emphasizes the extent to which conceptions of authenticity are forged through social interaction and socially mediated identities and how, in turn, authentic leadership involves the transformation of the organizational, social or cultural order in which leadership is situated. The overarching context for this exploration of authentic…

Miller-Lane, Jonathan; Howard, Tyrone C.; Halagao, Patricia Espiritu – Theory and Research in Social Education, 2007
During the past several decades, multicultural education has become an integral part of the social studies as a means to authentically prepare students for living in an inclusive and democratic society. Topics traditionally omitted, such as race, ethnicity, culture, social class, and gender, are now included. Yet, while multicultural education has…

Gaudelli, William – Theory and Research in Social Education, 2007
Transjudicialism is a phenomenon where precedents derived beyond a particular venue, such as global, regional, and national courts, serve as legal rationale within sovereign jurisdictions. Transjudicialism is part of a broader trend towards judicial globalization where legal discourses transcend national jurisdictions and supra-national bodies…

Roholt, Ross VeLure; Hildreth, R. W.; Baizerman, Michael – Child & Youth Services, 2007
We propose civic youth work as a new craft orientation in the family of child and youth care, education, social work, recreation and other relevant semi-to-full professions. We envision this practice as based in the philosophies and practical sciences of pedagogy, politics, and human development. The ideal-type civic youth worker will have a…

Richardson, Carol P. – Music Education Research, 2007
In this paper I address the distance between our practices as music educators and the democratic issues of equity, social justice and social consciousness. I first explore issues of elitism, identity politics, and our natural aversion to change. I then propose several approaches that we as university faculty may take through our curricula and…

Fielding, Michael – Journal of Education Policy, 2007
In order to address some of the key underlying issues currently distorting dominant approaches to schooling it is necessary to acknowledge and engage with our broad intellectual and cultural responsibilities currently shunned by contemporary policy. Philosophy has a key role to play here, in terms of both deconstruction and recommendation. Drawing…

Anderson, Elizabeth A. – Compare: A Journal of Comparative Education, 2007
In present-day Moldova there is a perpetuation and continuity of Soviet academic culture, in which history is viewed as "a science" and not subject to a multiplicity of interpretations. A relatively small and interconnected group of historians dominate the academy and subsequently the textbook writing. They wield a great deal of power in…

Soudien, Crain – Race, Ethnicity and Education, 2007
The essential argument made in this paper is that contact in the South African school is structured around fundamentally asymmetric relations of "knowing" between groups. Three distinct periods are delineated, the first of which (1976-1990) contained the most substantial ideas and contributions to debates and actual steps taken with…

Jenkins, Elwyn R. – Children's Literature in Education, 2007
Visual aspects of 12 collections of children's writing that were published in South Africa between 1986 and 2003 are considered. The covers, illustrations, facsimiles of original writing and artwork, fonts, colours and author credits create images of childhood and youth and provide clues to the purposes for which the collections were made and…

Waghid, Yusef – Perspectives in Education, 2007
In this response I argue that smart thinking would not necessarily engender democratic justice in our South African society. I contend that we need to cultivate responsible thinkers and that universities are favourably positioned to do so.

The research question for this paper is: How can we mobilise robust hope in the analysis of teacher education policy?

Resnik, Julia – Journal of Education Policy, 2007
The 1968 structural reform of the education system in Israel was part both of a global process of democratization of education launched after the Second World War and of a larger modernization project in which the social sciences played a crucial role. This dynamic was an expression of a conjunction of interests, in which political forces used…
