Islamic schools, especially madrasahs, have been viewed as sites of indoctrination for Muslim students and militants. Some educators and parents in the United States have also regarded introductory courses on Islam in some public schools as indoctrinatory. But what do we mean by "indoctrination"? And is Islamic education indoctrinatory? This book critically discusses the concept of indoctrination in the context of Islamic education. It explains that indoctrination occurs when a person holds to a type of beliefs known as control beliefs that result in ideological totalism. Using Indonesia as an illustrative case study, the book expounds on the conditions for an indoctrinatory tradition to exist and thrive. Examples include the Islamic school co-founded by Abu Bakar Ba’asyir and the militant organisation Jemaah Islamiyah. The book further proposes ways to counter and avoid indoctrination through formal, non-formal, and informal education. It argues for the creation and promotion of educative traditions that are underpinned by religious pluralism, strong rationality, and strong autonomy. Examples of such educative Muslim traditions in Indonesia will be highlighted. Combining philosophical inquiry with empirical research, this book is a timely contribution to the study of contemporary and often controversial issues in Islamic education.

In recent times, there has been intense global interest on and scrutiny of Islamic education. In reforming Islamic schools, what are the key actions initiated and are they contested or negotiated by and among Muslims? This edited collection brings together leading scholars to explore current reforms in Islamic schools. Drawing together international case studies, Reforms in Islamic Education critically discusses the reforms, considering the motivations for them, nature of them and perceptions and experiences of people affected by them. The contributors also explore the tensions, resistance, contestations and negotiations between Muslims and non-Muslims, and among Muslims, in relation to the reforms. Highlighting the need to understand and critique reforms in Islamic schools within broad historical, political and socio-cultural contexts, this book is a valuable resource for academics, policymakers and educators.

"This book explores the decline of the teaching of epistemic, conceptual knowledge in schools, its replacement with everyday social knowledge, and its relation to changes in the division of labor within the global economy. It argues that the emphasis on social knowledge in postmodern and social constructionist pedagogy compounds the problem, and examines the consequences of these changes for educational opportunity and democracy itself"-- Provided by publisher.

Die Pesantren Auf Java

Pesantren, traditionelle islamische Internatsschulen bzw. Klöster auf Java, gibt es seit annähernd 500 Jahren. Sie waren neben und in Opposition zu den kraton, den Fürstenhöfen, die bedeutendsten kulturschaffenden und -erhaltenden Institutionen. Die Vitalität der vielen Tausend pesantren auf Java und zunehmend in ganz Indonesien scheint auch heutzutage ungebrochen; doch das war nicht immer so. In der wechselhaften Geschichte der pesantren reflektieren sich die radikalen Umwälzungen, die insbesondere im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert statt fanden. Mit der Analyse der Institution pesantren gelingt eine erhellende und zusammenschauende Darstellung des kulturellen und sozialen Wandels auf Java, gegenwärtiger politischer und religiöser, insbesondere islamisch-fundamentalistischer Tendenzen, sowie des Alltagslebens der breiten ländlichen Mittelschicht.
