Pages: 1-15

Alternative education, Bullying in the schools

See More

Abstract/Notes: Bullying is a serious problem in mainstream public schools. One purpose of this article is to review the literature to investigate whether other types of schools, such as Steiner schools and Montessori schools, have a lower frequency of bullying than mainstream schools. Another purpose is to determine if bullying is a common factor leading to decisions to homeschool children. The article also includes a discussion of some lessons mainstream schools can learn from alternative schools about bullying prevention. There is evidence to suggest that bullying is more prevalent at mainstream schools, and bullying is a commonly cited reason to homeschool.

Abstract/Notes: Objectives. To evaluate trends in rates of personal belief exemptions (PBEs) to immunization requirements for private kindergartens in California that practice alternative educational methods. Methods. We used California Department of Public Health data on kindergarten PBE rates from 2000 to 2014 to compare annual average increases in PBE rates between schools. Results. Alternative schools had an average PBE rate of 8.7%, compared with 2.1% among public schools. Waldorf schools had the highest average PBE rate of 45.1%, which was 19 times higher than in public schools (incidence rate ratio = 19.1; 95% confidence interval = 16.4, 22.2). Montessori and holistic schools had the highest average annual increases in PBE rates, slightly higher than Waldorf schools (Montessori: 8.8%; holistic: 7.1%; Waldorf: 3.6%). Conclusions. Waldorf schools had exceptionally high average PBE rates, and Montessori and holistic schools had higher annual increases in PBE rates. Children in these schools may be at higher risk for spreading vaccine-preventable diseases if trends are not reversed.

Alcune applicazioni alternative del metodo educativo di Maria Montessori

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori pose al centro della sua infaticabile attività di ricerca il bambino considerandone le esigenze e i diritti. Si può affermare che nel suo metodo educativo ci sia una sorta di “antidoto” per ritrovare l’ecologia dell’educazione. Nel processo educativo dell’infanzia, infatti, la conoscenza dei problemi dell’ambiente e la cura dell’ambente costituisce un valore. Proprio nel modo in cui lei affronta questo argomento, si ritrovano i principi fondamentali del suo metodo. / Maria Montessori put children problems in a very relevant position among her studies, considering needs and rights. It is possible to say that her educational method is a real “antidote”, useful for promoting ecological education. In fact, it is very important taking care for the environment problems. In the way she face this subject we find fundamental aspects of her pedagogical method.

Through the Looking Glass: Methodological Features of Research of Alternative Schools

Publication: Journal of Elementary Education / Revija za Elementarno Izobraževanje, vol. 13, no. 1

Abstract/Notes: On the basis of the analysis of the general characteristics of alternative schools and the methodology of pedagogical research, the comparison and synthesis of the obtained facts were formed. It is pointed out that in the field of pedagogy, the adoption of (positivist) methodology has become a global trend. It emphasizes the uncritical application of research tools from the corpus of quantitative methodology in research of specific educational problems, as well as in research of alternative schools in which the context of the research is significantly different than the one of the conventional public schools.
