This volume represents a dialogue that the co-editors and contributors have been part of for several years, in part through our collaboration on the Children’s Rights Learning Group of Una (a joint learning initiative on children and ethnic diversity) . We have often speculated about how various social insti- tutions—particularly those broadly related to education—would change if chil- dren’s rights were an authentic priority . We thank all the children whose voices and perspectives helped inform the chapters in this volume—giving their views due weight is at the heart of our work . We also thank the contributing authors for raising critical issues and sharing diverse perspectives on children’s rights, lives and education . We want to thank Christopher Myers, Peter Lang Managing Director, who was very responsive and helpful, as well as our excellent copyeditor, Tom Bechtle . We also appreciated working closely with book series editor, Gaile S . Cannella and production editor, Sophie Appel . We benefited greatly from the assistance of student intern and editor, Nathalia Biscarra in formatting and reference check- ing . We thank Damian Charette for his cover art, that reminded us that children indeed dream the cosmos . Finally, we appreciate the support and patience of those who supported us throughout the book editing process . SwadenerEtal.indd 9 06/08/13 8:05 AM SwadenerEtal.indd 10 06/08/13 8:05 AM
