Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This essay is a pedagogical, theological, and political manifesto, a wake-up call for educators and religious educators to be aware of the still influential neo-liberal rhetoric, politics and practices which are also poisoning and colonizing the educational processes in schools. It is a call on educators and religious educators in different functions to act as public intellectuals in society at large and to take stance for the benefit of children and youngsters and supporting them in developing their personhood in education and in religious and worldview education. It is time for taking responsibility nationally and globally.
