The City Montessori School in Lucknow is the largest school in the world . . . but that’s not even why they’re famous. They pride themselves on their unique peace education program, which was awarded the UNESCO Prize for Peace Education in 2002.
What are some of their ideas?
In the first of a series of Podcasts, Joyeeta Dey, independent researcher at the History for Peace project, talks about the City Montessori’s Peace Studies approach for all their students.
History for Peace proposes to create a podcast series which narrativizes peace studies research situated in schools in South Asia, i.e. narrating in the form of an engaging story studies that have been done on issues of discrimination, prejudice, stereotyping, violence, dialogue, conciliatory techniques.
