Asking fundamental and often uncomfortable questions about the nature and purposes of formal education, this book explores the three main ways of looking at the relationship between formal education, individuals and society: * that education improves society * that education reproduces society exactly as it is * that education makes society worse and harms individuals. Whilst educational policy documents and much academic writing and research stresses the first function and occasionally make reference to the second, the third is largely played down or ignored. In this unique and thought-provoking book, Clive Harber argues that while schooling can play a positive role, violence towards children originating in the schools system itself is common, systematic and widespread internationally and that schools play a significant role in encouraging violence in wider society. Topics covered include physical punishment, learning to hate others, sexual abuse, stress and anxiety, and the militarization of school. The book both provides detailed evidence of such forms of violence and sets out an analysis of schooling that explains why they occur. In contrast, the final chapter explores existing alternative forms of education which are aimed at the development of democracy and peace. This book should be read by anyone involved in education - from students and academics to policy-makers and practitioners around the world.

This book draws on the strengths that characterize communities and shows how these strengths can be put to use in improving education. Inspired by the South Asian communities with whom she worked, the author considers also Black African and dual heritage communities. Her ethnographic approach used a methodology specifically addressing the imbalance of power so that the suggestions and initiatives are led by the communities themselves. Members of a community have the greatest knowledge of their own culture and of cross-cultural challenges. This makes the book uniquely valuable. The book combines findings from the study, analysis, and theory with practical approaches. Each chapter concludes with creative applications in the classroom-what the children can do. The suggestions for lesson plans and activities are based on the children's own knowledge and socio-cognitive development. South Asian Communities will be invaluable for all those who work or intend to work with South Asian communities. With its extensive references to sociological and psychological research, it will be of interest to students of sociology, cultural studies, and social psychology, and its attention to issues of globalization and western society will attract an international audience.

How should we treat unruly children in schools? This is a question perennially raised by adults, but rarely asked of children. This British study takes as its point of departure the abolition of corporal punishment in schools and examines alternative sanctions are needed, which are effective but which do not contravene children's legal or moral rights. Sparing the Rod is the first book to explore the issues of discipline in schools within the framework of children's rights.
