The 9 Petalled Flower Of Peace: Petal 5 - Education

Published: 19.07.2015

We vow as teachers and students to seek to advance our highest possible knowledge and enlightenment in a cooperative truth seeking spirit;[1] we vow to abstain from violence in all educational settings, including rudeness, bullying, abuse, verbal violence, subtle manipulation, humiliation and corrupt misuse of power, or undermining (of either pupils or teachers).[2] We vow to actualize the highest educational potential within us all.[3] We vow to help advance towards a world which spends more energy and funds on education than on militarism and defence.[4] We vow to include peace education in all schools, colleges, universities.[5] We vow to develop appropriate curriculum models for planetary enlightenment including global values and spirituality, truth, nonviolence, cooperation and emotional wisdom and love.[6] We vow to favour the arts in education (music, fine art, dance, poetry, drama, literature) as much as scientific and technological education, recognizing that all human beings have aesthetic needs stemming from our spiritual natures.[7] We vow to include playfulness, humour, kindness, and emotional wisdom in our teaching and learning experiences.[8] We vow to de-emphasise competitiveness as the sole criteria for educational excellence, and instead to honour cooperation, group activity, citizenship skills, communication, empathy and social responsibility as part of true education.[9] We vow to work to include spiritual, ethical, moral,[10] philosophical and religious knowledge as an important part of educational provision in all contexts,[11] and that the idea of value free knowledge is a logical impossibility.[12]
