Peaceful Perspectives: Peace Education, Educating for Peace

  • Marg Sellers


Peace education was engendered by the Cold War, and with the thawing of East-West relations the educational interest in peace also dissipated. However, recent events have revoked the calm and initiated a global war against terrorism. In this paper I revisit the role of peace in education to rediscover and re-present how peaceful perspectives are inherent in learning and teaching. I outline a peaceful interpretation of the curriculum and suggest that a mandate for this perspective should be a priority.
