Dutch Cooperation Schools as Democratic Communities: A Constructive Perspective from Dewey's View on Democracy in Education
Renkema, Erik; Mulder, André; Barnard, Marcel
Religious Education, v114 n1 p57-68 2019
In this article, the authors reflect on the results of their previous research at cooperation schools in the Netherlands, where students and teachers from nonaffiliated and Christian backgrounds come together. Dewey's perspective on educating democratic values is combined with empirical results of this research, answering the question what Dewey's concept contributes to the reflection on the relation between values and religious education at these schools. This article shows that this reflection and the implementation of value-based religious education offers opportunities for schools that face the challenge of practicing encounter between students from different backgrounds.
