Abstract/Notes: City Montessori School, Lucknow (CMS), has been a pioneer in introducing and institutionalising the concept of Quality Control Circles in Education. The credit goes to its founder manager, Mr. Jagdish Gandhi. It was during his visit to Japan in 1992 that Mr. Gandhi first became aware of Quality Control Circles (QCC) and how Prof. Ishikawa successfully shaped them as formal groups within factories and offices, for the purpose of improving the quality of manufactured goods and services on a continuous basis. This is explained further in the article by David Hutchins in this journal special issue.

The Worldwide Spread of Peace Education: Discursive Patterns in Publications and International Organisations

Available from: Taylor and Francis Online

Publication: Globalisation, Societies and Education, vol. 17, no. 5

Pages: 638-657

Abstract/Notes: To investigate the spread of peace education (PE), we examined 685 documents in SCOPUS between 1970 and 2018 in 70 countries and triangulated the information with 11369 news articles and 22 international organisationś founding dates. PE emerged in scientific databases in the 1970s, lost momentum in 1990 and then globalised after 2003. PE’s institutionalisation was furthered by: (a) the increasing search for discourses that highlighted individual agency of self-declared ‘peace educators’; (b) educational expansion that generated a greater demand for so-called best practices; and (c) the active role of professionals working on organisations such as UNESCO, UNICEF and the identified international organisations. We recognised five loosely coupled narratives: PE’s (a) philosophical foundations and relationship to critical pedagogy; (b) application to improve international relationships; c) solution to internal conflicts; (d) measurements of interventions; (e) linkages to religion. We reflect on the implications of PE as an educational discourse in curricular reforms.

Abstract/Notes: This article highlights the process by which Maria Montessori's method is employed, the emergence of early schools, and the stages of the worldwide spread of this method. The importance of the Montessori method in the development of children, its advantages, disadvantages, achievements are discussed. It should also be noted that this article contains a list of common links, but it does not contain enough corresponding quotes. Please help improve this article by making more specific quotes. The Montessori method of education is an educational method that involves children's natural interests and activities rather than formal teaching methods. Montessori's class focuses on practical learning and the development of real-world skills. It emphasizes independence and believes that children are naturally passionate about knowledge and able to start learning in a sufficiently supportive and well-prepared learning environment. It rejects some traditional achievement indicators such as assessments and tests.
