Als wir in die Schule gingen, Bd. 2 (2008)
57 p., 120 figs.
How is the theme "family" presented in primary schools?
From Southeast-Asia to Northern America, from Norway to South-Africa ranges the private collection of primers, which can be visited in the Leipzig Schoolmuseum. In 100 primers from 50 countries with very different social systems the theme "family" is shown in different ways.
In this books schoolchildren are shown values and roles of family. But are these pictures realistic or are they made for educational purpose? Are the pictures ahead of their time or behind? Do text and pictures correspond or are they ambiguous?
This collection shows the up-to-dateness of this theme in our changing global society.
