Fielding faculty member Kathy Tiner publishes article in the International Journal of Humanities and Social Science

Schulz, L.L., Tiner, K.A., Sewell, D., Hirata, L. (2011). Towards a Pedagogy of Tenderness: Reflections on Cuban Education. International Journal of Humanities and Social Science. Vol.1 No.10; August

This reflective essay shares the experiences of U.S. educators through a research trip to explore educational practices in Cuba. The authors observed four components of the Cuban educational system and reflect through example and research the progression of the Cuban educational system from a “caring state” to a Pedagogy of Tenderness. As observed by the authors, the Cuban educational system offers pedagogy and practice that lends itself to U.S. aspirations to create meaningful and effective school, family, and community partnerships. Education in Cuba is seen as the responsibility of all of society and is defined through the partnering of school, family, and community. Keywords: pedagogy, education, Cuba
