Download E-books Religion und Demokratie in der Schule: Analysen zu einem grundsätzlichen Spannungsfeld (German Edition) PDF

By Ulrich Krainz

​Das Verhältnis von faith und Demokratie stellt eines der zentralen und aktuellen Problemfelder moderner pluralistischer Gesellschaften dar. Ulrich Krainz geht der Frage nach, welche Rolle der öffentlichen Schule und den dort stattfindenden Bildungsprozessen dabei zukommt und thematisiert zunächst die grundsätzliche politische size von faith. Praktisch realisiert sich diese in bestimmten Handlungsfeldern, wobei der Religionsunterricht besonders brisant erscheint. Dies wird am Beispiel des katholischen und islamischen Religionsunterrichts an öffentlichen Schulen in Österreich untersucht, der nach jeweils religiöser Zugehörigkeit getrennt durchgeführt wird. Die Studie ermöglicht einen Einblick in die Alltags- und Unterrichtspraxis, zeigt, welche Wert- und Moralvorstellungen Lehrkräfte haben und mit welchen Erfolgsaussichten sie diese zu vermitteln versuchen, und diskutiert die Kompatibilität dieser Vorgänge mit dem Aufbau demokratischer Grundorientierungen.
