More about the book
About the book
At the international level we detect some new trends in the relations between state and school. In some areas, a near total decentralisation of schooling is going on with more influence to parents and students. In other areas citizens deal with schisms in schools as ideological institutions. In some areas, economic and material conditions turn attention towards basic qualifications rather than education for democratic citizenship. The transformation of state theory continues and forces a reconsideration of issues about citizen's rights and what is becoming a continuing process of negotiations about duties, possibilities and legislative matters. - The conference was organised as a series of workshops which were concerned with an exploration of these items for a dialogue. The book report that dialogue.
