Rights-Based Education: towards a local democratic project

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

This article offers a dialogic engagement with Fielding & Moss's Radical Education and the Common School (2011). First, the author puts forward a critical and reflective narrative on the process in the London Borough of Waltham Forest to create a strategic children and young people plan, which she cautiously proposes is an attempt to define a local democratic project - rights-based education. She then goes on to explore whether a local authority and a community or 'commonwealth' of schools can act together - possibly in radical collegiality - to further democratic education locally.
