After Living in Norway, America Feels Backward. Here's Why. - BillMoyers.com | Citizenship Education in Schools and Communities | Scoop.it
Some years ago, I faced up to the futility of reporting true things about America’s disastrous wars and so I left Afghanistan for another remote mountainous country far away. It was the polar opposite of Afghanistan: a peaceful, prosperous land where nearly everybody seemed to enjoy a good life, on the job and in the family.It’s true that they didn’t work much, not by American standards anyway. In the US, full-time salaried workers supposedly laboring 40 hours a week actually average 49, with almost 20 percent clocking more than 60. These people, on the other hand, worked only about 37 hours a week, when they weren’t away on long paid vacations. At the end of the work day, about four in the afternoon (perhaps three in the summer), they had time to enjoy a hike in the forest or a swim with the kids or a beer with friends -- which helps explain why, unlike so many Americans, they are pleased with their jobs.

Critical Pedagogy in the Age of Learning Management (#moocmooc)

Critical Pedagogy in the Age of Learning Management (#moocmooc) | Citizenship Education in Schools and Communities | Scoop.it
A great deal of education today is fucking absurd. Or, if not a great deal,
too much. Because in truth, there should be no identifiable quantity of
fucking absurdity present in education at all.

Radical roots | Citizenship Education in Schools and Communities | Scoop.it
Radicalisation, from a different perspective, can be a perfectly appropriate response to the violence perpetrated by the state – in prisons and immigration detention centres, for example. Radicalisation may take place when an individual is exposed to injustice, such as racial profiling by police, or the media portrayal of a peaceful protest as violent. It can also be experienced as a kind of trauma, in which previously-held beliefs are shattered.
