Peace & Tolerance: Cultural Congruence Between Home and School in Rural Ghana
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
The authors conducted a year-long ethnographic study of village schooling in rural Ghana. This paper examines the congruency between home and school culture in three villages, particularly discussing the finding that the values of peace and tolerance weigh heavily in decisions parents make about intervening in school issues on behalf of their children. This paper will extract lessons pertinent to an American schooling context, particularly as it relates to families of color.
