Introduction One of the goals of the photographers hired by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) during the 1990s and 2000s was to create images for the education of children and youth. For twenty years, CIDA sent these reproductions of images to schools in a multitude of formats, from magazines to videos, slide shows, games, picture books, and maps, produced in collaboration with academic specialists in education and the National Film Board of Canada (NFB). The attention and resources the international agency invested in the dissemination

Some philosophical obstacles and their resolution

MCK11 1/10/2003 10:35 AM Page 196 11 Education to toleration: some philosophical obstacles and their resolution David Heyd Toleration as a perceptual shift of perspectives Moral education has played a central role in all major ethical systems of thought from Aristotle to Kant, from the Torah to socialist ideology. Providing the young with moral education is particularly tricky, since moral judgement, and even more so moral behaviour, does not come naturally to human beings. The incorporation of moral values and norms requires a distinctive effort and often

4 Theatre, education and the politics of life itself: Theatre of Debate Over the first two decades of the twenty-first century, one UK-based theatre company systematically engaged with emergent themes in the biological and related sciences probably more than any other, at least in terms of the number of productions, collaborations with scientists and other experts, and total audiences reached. Unlike the practices discussed so far in this book though, most of Y Touring Theatre Company’s work was not presented within theatres. Over this time Y Touring worked

, however, ranged beyond service structure and delivery. This chapter will consider the implications of the growing impact of consumerism on British health policy and practice by examining a series of health education campaigns conducted during the 1980s. Such an analysis will take into account how consumerist tropes were used in the framing and delivery of these campaigns, but also how ‘consumers’ received such messages. Considering the relationship between consumerism, health education, and the public extends our

10 David Gribble Good news for Francisco Ferrer – how anarchist ideals in education have survived around the world1 Introduction This chapter discusses the educational ideas of Francisco Ferrer, as expressed in his book The origin and ideals of the Modern School (1913) and compares these ideas with actual practice in anarchist schools early in the twentieth century. I suggest that a parallel movement grew up during the last century in the progressive or democratic schools which was in many ways closer in spirit to Ferrer than these early anarchist schools

Second, add material on ECD to existing or planned training on humanitarian standards and guidance and develop complementary products to accompany these documents, such as case studies, video series, webinars, podcasts and illustrations or other visuals. Training is an effective way to reach practitioners with essential information. Third, develop practical guidance on

Child marriage is linked to adolescent pregnancy which has ripple effects, including reduced participation in economic development ( Chaaban and Cunningham, 2011 ). Married girls may drop out of school or have poor education outcomes ( Delprato et al. , 2015 ). Married girls also have less access to health services ( Godha et al. , 2013 ; Nasrullah et al. , 2013 ). In sub-Saharan Africa, recent studies

The withdrawal and deterioration of UNRWA services available in the public sphere is ultimately paralleled by the increasing demand on Palestinian individuals, families and communities to be self-sufficient, in spite of the long-standing (and arguably increasing) precarity of their situations.
