Participatory Education

Note: the following entry is a stub. Please help us complete it. 



According to the international non-profit 'Teachers Without Borders', "Participatory Education is an educational model in which students are given as much of a voice as their instructors or leaders in determining curriculum and activities (Sauve, n.d.).  All participants are active in defining their own needs as well as their own desires.  Beyond simply defining these goals, all participants work to implement them and then to evaluate the process that they used to achieve said goals.  The overall purpose of participatory education is defined as improving one's own life as well as the lives of others in the world by promoting justice and equality.  As such, participatory education is a methodology that fits the methods of peace education."
