Education is an ‘enabling factor’, which facilitates not only economic betterment but also human freedom. However, for the marginalised— Dalits and tribals in India, the Mapuche in Chile, the Maori in Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as women in most parts of the world—basic education remains a challenge not only due to lack of access, but also because the pedagogy of mainstream education alienates the marginalised. The editors and contributors of School Education, Pluralism and Marginality argue that school education must be conceptualised keeping in mind the material, social, and life experiences of marginalised groups. They strongly argue that pluralism and social inclusion should be the core principles of the pedagogic conceptual framework, practices and processes of school education across the world.Printed Pages: 500.
