Planning education in and after emergencies
by Margaret Sinclair
A debate in the milieu of educational planning is how and why education should be adapted in situations of emergency and to what extent it should be considered a high priority issue. In this booklet, the author emphasizes the important role of education in instilling social and ethical values in the minds of youth, and in teaching appropriate behaviour when reacting to natural disasters. She argues that although education cannot solve current problems within a country, it can help change people's attitudes, and thus prevent future conflicts.
