Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a world where students will have to co-exist with people different from themselves, sensitivity and openness to diversity ethnic, religious, linguistic, and ability-related is a core part of any good education.'Social Cohesion through Education' provides case studies and tools to help educators, policymakers, and the development community improve the ways in which education systems can promote tolerance and respect for diversity through improved management of existing inputs such as curriculum and textbook reform.The book address different issues in different countries and regions, but the fundamental message is the same: the explicit and implicit messages about inter-group relations that children receive in school shape the form and sensitivities of young minds with respect to other human beings. If education is to contribute to economic and social development, it is critical that we understand those messages and the means of their transmission.

Book News Annotation:

As labor migration both within and outside of countries continues, and nations continue to develop, children are increasingly learning in groups with children from ethnic and racial groups about which their grandparents only shared whispers. This practical guidebook gives teachers and administrators means of involving all students. The collection of eight essays starts with a description of analytical frameworks and systematic changes in curriculum and teachers. Case studies include an analysis of textbooks in terms of their support of diversity and social cohesion, racial content in textbooks before and after apartheid, the recent experience of Romani children in European schools, and diversity in textbooks used in the US. Essays on applications include social analysis in the design of World Bank education projects, and guidelines for international assistance agencies in interventions.
