About the need for today’s societies to take a definite stand for childhood.
This innovative essay is a manifesto that sheds light on the great contradictions of our society when it comes to the education of our children. On the one hand, in favor of a new pedagogy more focused on the discovery of talents and abilities than on the mere objective of achieving academic goals, that do not provide the guarantee of success and happiness in life. On the other, it advocates the promotion of public policies that return the use of public space as a space of freedom to people and children.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the creation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), one of the most ratified international treaties in history. But, is this treaty credible in the face of so much invisibility?
An essential essay that sheds light on the great contradictions of our society to such important issues as the education of children, by one of the greatest references in the field of pedagogy.
