K 12 Education as a Hermeneutic Adventurous Endeavor : Toward an Educational Way of Thinking Hardback
Considering the role of compulsory mass education and schooling in a democratic society, this book introduces an alternative vision for K-12 education as an "adventurous endeavour." Grounded in a strong theoretical framework, Yosef-Hassidim reveals the negative impact of instrumentalization of schools: when education is considered a social and political instrument, it serves dominant social forces' interests rather than students' or humanity as a whole.
Offering conceptual and pragmatic frameworks to limit political influence on schooling, the author proposes a new hermeneutical structure that restores education's agency and separates it from external social forces, and provides the foundation for regarding K-12 education as a sovereign social sphere in its own right.
