English Abstract

Human rights issues are controversial. In addition, pupils now can google and challenge teachers what they are teaching in classrooms, where teachers used to monopolize knowledge and truth are no longer sustainable. While losing the position to be monopolizing in classrooms, how could teachers teach values? Even, when students challenge the educational authority to the effect that what taught at school is a kind of brainwashing, how value education is possible in teaching contexts? This study discusses these questions in terms of human rights education. It explores a possible model of teaching, which could meet the challenges and integrate human rights values, such as freedom, equality, and tolerance into the teaching process. It argues that the best model of teaching could be set up with a public platform for learning in the classroom where versatile opinions from students and teachers could be expressed and get examined freely and equally. In brief, a democratic classroom, like this platform serves, could be the best model for human rights education in the age of value pluralism and the Internet at the same time.
