Within the European and Asian context scientists from nine different countries are concerned with political and social interactional structures between schools as public institutions and the local political actors which influence the school environment. The contributions give answers to questions regarding the cooperation between school administrations and community, to civic education for sustainable development at the interface between school and community, to teachers as moderators for political and democratic educational processes and to models for successful cooperation between schools and local political actors.

Im Rahmen einer weltweit angelegten Expertenbefragung und bezogen auf die von der UNESCO etablierten fünf Weltregionen hat diese Studie die Konzepte einer Bildung für nachhaltige Entwicklung aus politikdidaktischer Perspektive sowie deren praktische Umsetzung vor dem Hintergrund von länderspezifischen Bildungsinstitutionen analysiert. Es wird die Frage beantwortet, inwieweit der Dekadenprozess auf internationaler und nationalstaatlicher Ebene sowie in zivilgesellschaftlichen Kontexten als bildungspolitisches Demokratisierungsprojekt im Sinne einer „Global- und Good Governance“ verstanden werden kann. Die Autoren kommen u.a. zu dem Ergebnis, dass erst die dauerhafte Etablierung demokratischer Bildungsstrukturen, die gleichermaßen aus staatlich unterstützten Top-down- und zivilgesellschaftlich fundierten Bottom-up-Prozessen erwachsen müssen, auf längere Sicht erwarten lassen, dass sich die Leitideen einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung im Handeln von Regierungen und Bürgern widerspiegeln.p>

This book is concerned with the social and political aspects of regional groupings, particularly how citizenship education fares in regional contexts. The European Union (EU) has revolutionised its political and economic aims into more encompassing social and political goals. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), on the other hand, is still moving towards fuller integration in social and economic terms as South East Asian nations seek a greater role on the global stage and particularly in the global economy. Both the EU and ASEAN have drawn up educational frameworks that collectively work to harness educational achievements which in turn work to fulfill social and economic objectives at the regional level. This book portrays citizenship issues affecting the two regions and describes the way citizenship education can reflect and address these issues. Case studies on EU and ASEAN member countries make up the book’s two parts which analyse, among other issues: The Changing Landscape of Citizenship Education in England Political Didactics and Political Education in Germany Rethinking a Conceptual Framework for Citizenship Education in ASEAN Countries Education for ASEANness: A tool to build an ASEAN community This book explores new ideas on citizenship and comparative education in regional contexts and will be of interest to researchers concerned with the impact of regionalism on social development and to citizenship educators studying the influence of contexts on the construction of citizenship education.

The Link between Health, Social Issues and Secondary Education is based on country studies in six Sub-Saharan African countries - Eritrea, Mali, Namibia, Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania, and a literature review. It looks at the role of secondary education and training in promoting health, civics and life skills among the African youth. Specifically, this study focuses on examining which schooling programs are effective in equipping young people with life skills, which programs reduce drop-out and increase participation and how schools can become agents in tackling health and social issues.

The authors of this volume argue that urban education is in urgent need of reform and that, although there have been plenty of innovative and even promising attempts to improve conditions, most have been doomed. The reason for this, they agree, lies in the failure of our major cities to develop their "civic capacity" -- the ability to build and maintain a broad social and political coalition across all sectors of the urban community in pursuit of a common goal.Drawing upon an ambitious eleven-city study funded by the National Science Foundation, the authors synthesize and make sense of the enormous amount of data from Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Not only is this a vivid report from the front lines of big city schooling, but this work challenges us to rethink our approach to the crisis in our schools.The authors vigorously contend that it is essential for all (or most) important actors in an urban community to join together in a shared vision of what is wrong in the schools and how to fix it, and to pursue that vision strongly and systematically over a long time. That can only happen, however, if those same actors develop the ability and willingness to set aside narrow aims and opportunistic behavior in favor of pursuing the collective good.Written for a wide spectrum of potential readers -- including educators, social scientists, policymakers, and every citizen who cares about his or her child's education -- this book restores coalition politics to the center of educational reform and reminds us to look well beyond pedagogy and management theory for solutions to problems that areimmune to the usual remedies. Drawing on select cases, the authors show that effective civic coalitions can be built. The struggle for reform can be won.
