Religion and its relationship to schooling is an issue that has become more and more topical in recent years. In many countries, developments such as the diversification of state school sectors, concerns about social cohesion between ethnic and religious groups, and debates about national identity and values have raised old and new questions about the role of religion in education. Whilst the significance of this issue has been reflected in renewed interest from the academic community, much of this work has continued to be based around theoretical or pedagogical debates and stances, rather than evidence-based empirical research. This book aims to address this gap by exploring the social and political role of religion in the context of the primary school. Drawing on original ethnographic research with a child-centred orientation, comparisons are drawn between Community and Roman Catholic primary schools situated within a multi-faith urban area in the UK. In doing so, the study explores a number of ways in which religion has the potential to contribute to everyday school life, including through school ethos and values, inter-pupil relations, community cohesion and social identity and difference. At the centre of the analysis are two key sociological debates about the significance of religion in late modern societies. The first is concerned with the place of religion in public life and the influence of secularisation and post-secularism on the relationship between religion and schooling. The second relates to the increasingly multi-faith nature of many national populations and the implications for religious citizenship in educational settings. Religion in the Primary School will be a useful resource for academics, researchers and students as a key addition to existing knowledge in the disciplines of education, sociology and human geography. It will also be of value to both policy-makers and educationalists interested in the role of religion in schools and the implications for the wider community and society in a range of national contexts.

Understanding the University constitutes the final volume in a trilogy – the first two books having been Being a University (2010) and Imagining the University (2012) – and represents the trilogy’s ultimate aims and endeavours. The three volumes together offer a unique attempt at a fairly systematic and exhaustive level to map out just what it might be seriously to understand the extraordinarily complex entity that is known across the world as ‘the university’. Through examination of the conditions and possibilities underlying and affecting universities, this work offers an understanding of specific ideas of the university which can inform policies, strategies and practices in relation to the university. This book is a must read for leaders and senior managers in universities , as well as those undertaking postgraduate studies in the policy and practice of higher education.

This book brings a refreshing perspective to preparing students with disabilities and their families for all aspects of independent life. Many of the transitions experienced by younger children set the stage for future changes, yet do not receive the attention they deserve in the literature. This publication offers a strengths-based approach that includes philosophical perspectives and evidence-based practices to assist this vulnerable population with lifespan changes and challenges. Each chapter addresses transitional needs and their assessment, and relevant interventions from the perspectives of an application to schools, families and communities. Multicultural perspectives are integral to all these chapters. The book covers transition from: - home to early childhood education - early childhood education to primary school - primary school to secondary school - primary school to special settings - juvenile justice settings back into the community - school to work - school to further education or training - post-school settings to retirement. Lifespan Transitions and Disability: A holistic perspective is a necessary companion for postgraduate education students and researchers who have an interest in exploring the nature and context of special and inclusive education today.

Dieser Band versammelt die religionskritischen Schriften Bertrand Russels, darunter die titelgebende Rede Warum ich kein Christ bin, Nette Leute und Was ich glaube. Seine Reden und Essays bleiben dabei nicht nur reine Meinungsäußerung, sondern widerlegen geistreich und unterhaltsam religiösen Irrglauben und liefern Argumente, die selbst orthodoxe Fanatiker ins Grübeln bringen sollten. In Was ich glaube wird der Humanismus des Mathematikers, Philosophen und Pazifisten Bertrand Russell deutlich. Denn wenn Gott keine Option ist, müssen plötzlich andere Antworten auf wichtige Fragen gefunden werden: Wie sollen wir leben? Hat das Leben einen Sinn? Kurzweilig und bestechend zeigt Russell, dass ein selbstbestimmtes Leben nur ohne Religion möglich ist und dass eine gute Tat, die nicht aus freien Stücken begangen wird, letztlich die höchste Form der Heuchelei ist. Russells Reden und Essays – aktueller denn je – werden in der modernen und greifbaren Übersetzung von Grete Osterwald endlich wieder zugänglich für unsere Zeit, in der im Namen von Religionen nicht weniger Leid angetan wird als noch vor hundert Jahren.
