Abstract

This book deals with activist pedagogy, empowering human agency, shared education, and shared life. It conceptualizes the role of educators as agents of change in response to real-world challenging realities of injustice, violent conflict, and lack of commitment to democratic values and genuine cultural diversity. While the book discusses the moral and theoretical justifications for addressing such issues in the educational sphere, it also shows that it is a practical project. Our specific focus in this collection is divided societies – those that struggle with ongoing social conflicts – and the ways in which the education sphere contributes to mitigating tensions, bringing diverse groups together, while working to advance school achievements.
