4 Research problem 4

5 The research problem Education in a divided society Constructive or destructive roles? (Bush & Saltarelli, 2000) A tool in socialisation to the divided status quo? (Podeh, 2000) the means and the message by which worldviews are transmitted, cultures are reproduced, a way of life is passed on, and a person is created. (Randall, Cooper & Hite, 1999, p. 10) Citizenship and (common) citizenship education are contested So international educational rights obligations: a unifying perspective? or more contest? 5

11 Northern Ireland Israel helps young people learn how to participate positively in society, to influence democratic processes and to make informed and responsible decisions as local and global citizens To inculcate a common Israeli civic identity, together with the development of distinct national identities, and to impart to students the values of pluralism and tolerance - Diversity and Inclusion; - Equality and Social Justice. - Israel as a Jewish and democratic state; - Israeli society (diversity, equality, human rights). 11

12 Education rights Culturally appropriate Flexible to the needs of a particular community 12

13 Culturally appropriate Flexible to the needs of a particular community Key issues 13

14 Culturally appropriate Flexible to the needs of a particular community Research participants Students of citizenship education age years (24) Teachers of citizenship education (16) Citizenship education policy-makers (12) 14

15 Culturally appropriate Flexible to the needs of a particular community Key issue 1: Representation in (educational) governance is a basic concern 15

16 1 Representation in educational governance is a basic concern Northern Ireland We had a really extensive process where basically every interest group, agenda group, organisation was able to put in its tuppence worth, to try and ensure that their interests were reflected in those statutory statements that now form the Citizenship curriculum (Rosaleen, NI policy-maker). 16

17 1 Representation in educational governance is a basic concern Israel The Ministry of Education involves people from all branches of the society and from different kinds of schools all over the country (David, Jewish policy-maker). Listen, there is a difference between if you write about me and if I write about myself. So maybe in the textbooks, for example, there is the existence of the Arabs, but the main question is, Who wrote this? Is it Jewish who wrote about Arabs with their eyes? Or is it Arabs who write about themselves? And I know that it is not the Arabs that write about themselves. The textbook was written by three women, all of them are Jewish, and after that it was given to somebody to translate it (Latifa, Palestinian teacher, binational school). 17

18 Culturally appropriate Flexible to the needs of a particular community Key issue 2: Finding yourself in the story can lead to engagement 18

19 2 Finding yourself in the story can lead to engagement Israel everybody has to find themselves in the story (Gad, Jewish teacher). we can t teach what we think or what we believe in This book is the Jewish version, we don t believe in the same things that they wrote in this book, we believe in other things (Layla, Palestinian teacher). because they [Jews] don t learn about us, we [Palestinians] shouldn t learn about them (Zaina, Palestinian student). 19

20 2 Finding yourself in the story can lead to engagement Northern Ireland Catholic students Interviewer: Do yous get to talk about that [Protestants and Catholics] a lot in school? Hannah: not a lot Caitlín: not a lot because there s not like loads of stuff that we re allowed to bring up about all the Troubles and all... you don t really go into that much depth about it Hannah: you just learn about how it was back then, you don t learn about it now Interviewer: Yeah. Is that something yous would maybe like to feel that you could talk about a wee bit more in class? All students: yeah... Caitlín: Protestants and Catholics have so much history, so like we re all sort of on the same page, we all know what s going on. 20

21 Culturally appropriate Flexible to the needs of a particular community Key issue 3: Balancing common and differentiated parts of curriculum? 21

22 3 Balancing common and differentiated parts of curriculum Northern Ireland I think if you had a segregated curriculum, either the schools would say, Too controversial, we re not touching that and so that generation misses out on that challenge, or you could have a situation where it almost seems inevitable that there would be a particular emphasis on an interpretation of events, and I think that s problematic for the future reconciliation and community building (Nicola, teacher, Catholic school). 22

23 3 Balancing common and differentiated parts of curriculum Israel Everything is political here. I mean, there are so many interests of different people, so you can t really please everyone all the time (Lev, Jewish teacher). This is a Jewish state in the sense that it s a state of the Jewish people and there s a dominant culture and with it is a certain ethos that has to be studied and understood (Netanel, Jewish policy-maker). Jews see this book as for the Arab side, and Arabs see this book as for the Jewish side (Layla, Palestinian teacher). 23

24 Culturally appropriate Flexible to the needs of a particular community So what might this mean for young people s civic identity? 24

25 Today s themes Research problem Citizenship education and education rights - Northern Ireland - Israel Key issues Culturally appropriate Flexible to the needs of a particular community 25

26 d And finally... It s like common sense, but smarter (Roisín, Catholic student) 26
