Abstract/Notes: This thesis explores young boys' and girls' perceptions and experiences of their schooling in the small island developing state of Mauritius. It brings to the forefront problems related to cultural and structural violence that can hamper a peaceful schooling in three state secondary schools: a single-sex girls' school, a single-sex boys' school and a mixed school which also promote the educational theories of M. K. Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore. The findings reveal that there can be a 'fideistic' attitude to Gandhi and Tagore in this context, which highlight the need for a critical peace education that question taken-for-granted assumptions. It also shows that in schools, problems can be hidden and not discussed. The methodology was based on a participatory worldview that asserts the importance of a 'holistic inquiry' and learning from the 'Other' for peaceful coexistence. In this regard, there can be serious ethical challenges for a 'native' researcher to conduct participatory research with young people in a small-connected community like Mauritius. The research also brings together various philosophies of education and peace for the promotion of peace education. It builds on commonalities from the East and West to highlight the importance of the 'holistic' in peace education. It promotes the concept of 'wholeness' as much emphasised in the East. The research was informed by M.K. Gandhi's, Rabindranath Tagore's and Maria Montessori's educational theories for peace. It was also gender-sensitive and promoted a 'peace-focused-feminism', which is grounded in the Eastern philosophies of 'Yin' and 'Yang', 'Shakti' and 'Shiva' and 'Prakriti' and 'Purusha'.

Abstract/Notes: This story goes back to an email in 2006 that Eva Shaw, a former HIV/AIDS volunteer in Uganda sent to her mother Kay Grosso, shortly after some 50 mud huts were destroyed in a flood in the village of Nawantale, far away from Uganda's capital, Kampala. Shaw asked her mother to help in organizing mosquito netting and tents. Kay Grosso and Eva Shaw have written companion articles on both a personal and academic level how extreme poverty, minimal healthcare, and missing intergenerational educational contexts cry out for successful Montessori intervention.

Practical Life as a Model for Connecting the Child to his World

Publication: NAMTA Journal, vol. 44, no. 1

Pages: 27-35

Africa, Nigeria, Sub-Saharan Africa, West Africa

Abstract/Notes: Using examples from the Fruitful Orchard School in Abuja, Nigeria, Junnifa Uzodike reminds us of the special power of practical life activities to connect the young child to the world. Engagement with work that is in service to others, that tends to the natural world, and that attends to the needs of the self prepares the child to be an independent individual who moves confidently within the world, yet whose sense of gratitude for the gifts of history and the natural world moves them to act with conscientious intention and be an agent for peace.
