The Challenge of Humanising Education

Inter Press Service News Agency story:

"From the Chilean capital, the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organisation (UNESCO) launched a call to the world's governments and civil society to emphasise the humanistic side of education and culture through concrete policies that reach directly into the classroom.

"This is the underlying vision behind 'The Meanings of Education and Culture: Cultivating Humanity', an international event that kicked off in Santiago on Wednesday with a public forum, followed by a two-day workshop for specialists, Thursday and Friday, in Valparaiso, 120 kilometres west of the Chilean capital."
