Abstract/Notes: Mira Debs, the director of the Education Studies program at Yale University, played an instrumental role in the founding of Montessori for Social Justice. While obvious challenges associated with expanding racial and socioeconomic diversity in Montessori include transportation, subsidized meals, and limited access to lottery information, this book exposes complex additional issues, such as balancing the requirements of programmatic fidelity; managing potential gentrification when programs gain popularity, attracting middle-class families; and, finally, addressing family "fit." Furthermore, the limited availability of teacher education programs serves to restrict the diversity of individuals who choose to pursue Montessori teacher training, homogenizing the faces of Montessori teachers.

Abstract/Notes: During the last hundred and fifty years, the modernization of Japan has involved the borrowing of many ideas from other countries. However, these ideas were not simply transplanted uncritically. At the same time, some of their basic philosophical aspects were not completely understood. Ideas were and continue to be adapted, thus reflecting the different needs of Japanese culture and society. An illustration of this process of borrowing can be found in early childhood education, especially after the first Japanese kindergarten was established, based on the ideas of Friederich Froebel (1782-1852). Another example of Western ideas influencing Japanese education is the ideas of Maria Montessori (1870-1952). This paper describes the adaptation of a foreign educational movement. In addition, characteristics of Japanese early childhood education will be described, as well as government policies.

Abstract/Notes: Malaysia is a country with approximately 53% Muslims. The rest of the population belong to different religions like Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism. Due to religious and ethnic pluralism and a cultural antagonism inside the society, the Muslims have been virtually forced to adopt alternative thinking and to make new experiments in order to keep in line with the Chinese. Malaysia is, in an Islamic context, an interesting country. In the rural areas where the Malay population is in majority, syncre tic religious practices such as Muslim Shamanism, magic and healing are still common.1 Urban areas, on the other hand, are marked by a more intellectual approach towards Islam, due partially to the great number of Muslim students who pursue their post-graduate studies overseas. The Chinese form the economically strongest group in Malaysia, and have thus tended to be in control of the private schools with the highest intellectual levels. The establishment of private schools is growing and competition is strong to get students. Many Malays from the upper strata of society have therefore sent their children to schools run by Chinese...
