Can Educators Make a Difference?
Experimenting with, and Experiencing,
Democracy in Education
Edited by Paul R. Carr, Lakehead University,
David Zyngier, Monash University and Marc Pruyn, Monash University
A volume in Critical Constructions: Studies on Education and Society Series Editor: Curry Stephenson Malott, West Chester University of Pennsylvania. As the title of this book suggests, how we understand, perceive and experience democracy may have a significant effect on how we actually engage in, and with, democracy. Within the educational context, this is a key concern, and forms the basis of the research presented in this volume within a critical, comparative analysis. The Global Doing Democracy Research Project (GDDRP), which currently has some 70 scholars in over 20 countries examining how educators do democracy, provides the framework in which diverse scholars explore a host of concerns related to democracy and democratic education, including the impact of neoliberalism, political literacy, critical engagement, teaching and learning for and about democracy, social justice, and the meaning of power/power relations within the educational context. Ultimately, the contributors of this book collectively ask: can there be democracy without a critically engaged education, and, importantly, what role do educators play in this context and process? Why many educators in diverse contexts believe that they are unable, dissuaded and/or prevented from doing thick democratic education is problematized in this book but the authors also seek to illustrate that, despite the challenges, barriers and concerns about doing democracy in education, something can, and should, be done to develop, cultivate and ingratiate schools and society with more meaningful democratic practices and processes. This book breaks new ground by using a similar empirical methodology within a number of international contexts to gage the democratic sentiments and actions of educators, which raises a host of questions about epistemology, teacher education, policy development, pedagogy, institutional cultures, conscientization, and the potential for transformational change in education.

7 March 2012 (Wednesday) - Tashkent
Our first visit today was to music school which is known as Republican Specialised Academic Lyceum of Music named after V. Uspenskiy. The
curriculum of the school is geared toward producing world class
musicians and artists. Only talented students were succeeded to enrol
in this school by rigorous screening and talent testing.
Our final official visit was a meeting with the management of the
Central in-Service and Retraining Institute of Public Education Staff named after Abdulla Avloniy. The meeting was led by the institute Rector, Mr. Maqsdujan A. Yuldashev and Dr. Zainab on behalf of IAB. Basically, the establishment of this institute is almost similar with IAB vis-a-vis its functions.
