New Social Foundations for Education

Education in 'Post Secular' Society

Philip Wexler and Yotam Hotam

There has been growing scholarly attention to questions about the revival of religion and religiosity on global social, cultural and political fronts and the emergence of a ‘post-secular’ society. New Social Foundations for Education is dedicated to the drawing of the implications of the contemporary ‘post-secular’ social transformation for education. Though the question of the ‘post-secular’ stands at the focal point of a wide range of academic debates and discussions, within educational discourse it has not received close scholarly attention. This volume aims to correct this lack by presenting groundbreaking works of leading scholars from Europe, the United States, and the Middle East. Contributions discuss such topics as the mystical tradition and its social and pedagogic implications; transformative and ecological education; ‘new age’ spiritualism and its educational implications; and the relations between secular and religious education in different local contexts.

8. Palestinian Secular and Muslim Organizations’ Educational Activism in Israel: Without, Within and Against

AYMAN K. AGBARIA & MUHANAD MUSTAFA

This chapter attempts to provide a comparative micro-level analysis of the involvement of two Palestinian civil society organizations in the field of education in the State of Israel, focusing on their ideology and practice vis-à-vis the State. Specifically, the chapter presents two instrumental case studies (Stake, 2000; Yin, 2003): The Follow-Up Committee on Arab Education (FUCAE)—a secular organization that operates under the auspices of the National Committee for Arab Mayors and aspires to represent Arab society as a whole—and Eqraa, the Association for the Promotion of Education in the Arab sector (Eqraa), a faith-based organization that is controlled by the Islamic Movement in Israel.
