  • John Dewey: His Role in Public Scholarship to Educate for Peace

    • Authors: Charles Francis Howlett, Audrey Cohan
      Pages: 203 - 222
      Abstract:  As 2016 is the centennial of Dewey's most famous work, Democracy and Education (2016), it is important to consider Dewey's role in public scholarship to educate for peace. Critical to an in-depth understanding of Dewey is recognition that the early twentieth century marked a transformation period in his views about war and peace. This paper addressed Dewey's less known political and social ideas during the rise of the "modern" American peace movement. In addition, Dewey's views of the role of education in a globalizing world are discussed. The research presented directly reflects global conflicts following World War 1, while highlighting the interplay of social analysis as welll as disparity between war and peace.

  • 1939: L’escola renovadora de Catalunya se’n va a l’exili

    • Authors: Salomó Marquès Sureda
      Pages: 223 - 245
      Abstract: Durante la República se consiguieron unos elevados niveles de enseñanza y educación en Cataluña y, en general, en España. Para construir una sociedad más democrática, justa y solidaria las autoridades republicanas invirtieron mucho en educación. Se trataba de ayudar a los pequeños ciudadanos a pensar de manera crítica y avivir los valores republicanos. Las bases de la escuela republicana eran la cientificidad y la enseñanza experimental. El salto cualitativo que se produjo de la escuela de la monarquía a la escuela republicana fue notable.Con la victoria militar de los rebeldes a la República y la instauración de la dictadura franquista se produjo una radical separación de modelos escolares. Muchos de los maestros líderes de la renovación pedagógica marcharon al exilio, especialmente a México y otros países americanos. Allí continuaron enseñando y practicando las metodologías renovadoras que habían practicado en Cataluña. El exilio americano de tantos maestros excelentes condujo a una notable mejora escolar en los países de acogida, al tiempo que la escuela bajo la dictadura franquista retrocedía a modelos autoritarios y tradicionales.

  • Affirmative Action for Minorities in India: Constraints and Possibilities

    • Authors: Mohd. Sanjeer Alam
      Pages: 246 - 272
      Abstract: India is one of the most socially fragmented and unequal societies of the world. At the same time, it has the distinction of having the longest history of most elaborative affirmative action programmes for alleviating socially structured inequalities. While the affirmative action programmes have wider coverage in terms of social groups, there is continuing demand by new social groups for getting acknowledged as ‘disadvantaged’ and inclusion in the system of affirmative action. While group based ‘reservation’ as the most vital instrument of social justice has long been under fire and grappling with several challenges, the social justice regime is faced with the charge that it has largely excluded nation’s religious minorities. Of course, religion based affirmative action is faced with many constraints; nevertheless there are possibilities for it. This article discusses the constraints and possibilities of affirmative action for disadvantaged religious minorities, Muslims in particular.

  • Seeking new paradigms in Aboriginal education research: methodological
           opportunities, challenges and aspirations

    • Authors: Marnee Shay
      Pages: 273 - 296
      Abstract: It is only relatively recently that Aboriginal peoples in Australia are represented in the academe, creating knowledges that speak for, and not of us. Internationally renowned Maori scholar, Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith, was groundbreaking in her use of critical discourses needed for indigenous peoples globally to reclaim our knowledges and experiences through research. The emergence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholars in Australia presents hope and opportunities for our communities to utilise the possibilities that ethical, Indigenous-driven research can have in interrogating complex and ongoing issues created by colonialism.Research that theorises Aboriginal epistemic and ontological research paradigms in Australia are still developing. Moreover, discipline-specific theoretical frameworks and methodologies are still emerging. This paper outlines my experience as an Aboriginal researcher in utilising Indigenist theoretical principles and methodological approaches. Using autobiographical reflections from my doctoral research, I present a range of practical implications that arise when the 'researched' shifts to the researcher in Western-dominated spaces such as schools. I will critically analyse the question, are Aboriginal researchers able to conduct research that is motivated by our agendas, ideas and aspirations in a discipline that perpetuates imperialism, racism and exclusion?
