Work is central to these enactments, which provides an opportunity to examine…

Zamir, Sara; Alkrenawy, Reham – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2022
Bedouin early childhood education lacks substantial resources and budgets, and so the adjacent Jewish education seems more appealing. Given the existing tensions between Arabs and Jews and the need to change the obscure future of co-existence, this paper examines the integration of Bedouin children into the early childhood education of a kibbutz,…

Modern historical research challenges religious education by undermining the arguments in favour of the existence of a supreme power who is responsible for patterns of reality. This article explores how the new generation of history textbooks of Religious Zionism, one of Israel's ideologically most influential populations, cope with this dilemma.…

Golden, Deborah; Aviezer, Ora; Ziv, Yair – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018

Langdon, Jonathan; Garbary, Rachel – Education as Change, 2017
Stories are a central component of how we understand ourselves and our societies in our world. This is especially true in the case of oral cultures. Stories, how they are used, how they are reframed, and how they change over time, are also an important record of learning. Randall (1996) and Kenyon and Randall (1997) have called this process…
