'The Question Concerning Education - Setting the Scene'


Farah Ahmed was asked to contribute to the latest MFAS course entitled ‘The Question Concerning Education – Setting the Scene’. Farah was asked to reflect on the Trojan Horse affair and use this event to explore the relationship between the State and education. She used the experience of Shakhsiyah Schools attempt to develop an ‘alternative’ approach to education and the difficulty in achieving this as a registered independent school. Her presentation was in the context of how an exclusively capitalist, instrumental and technological approach to education is dominating all other conceptions of education in the post-enlightenment world. The course was highly interactive and the aim was to enable participants to draw conclusions and principles about a philosophy of education that could impact the Muslim experience of education in the contemporary world. The course will continue through a second weekend seminar format exploring ‘The Question Concerning Education: The Way Forward’ on 1st and 2nd August 2015.
