Teachers for Peace features in The Educator Online’s ‘Deep Dive’ into the importance of peace education.
We were delighted to speak with The Educator about our work to promote peace and disarmament, and our campaign to end the influence of the weapons industry in STEM education.
We told The Educator:
“There is a long tradition of Australian educators teaching the importance of peace across the curriculum. Schools’ focus on things like tolerance for difference, or restorative approaches to conflict, are also great examples of how education contributes to a more peaceful society.”
“In our current geopolitical climate – with the prospect of war looming – we think there’s also a need to loudly and explicitly challenge the normalisation of war, examine the underlying causes of conflict, and to ask who suffers – and who benefits – when war happens.”
