Presenting a Theoretical Model of Educational Justice in the Formal and Public Education System Based on the Epistemological Principles of Farabi Justice

Tue, 07/09/2019 - 23:23
This study aimed to present a theoretical model of educational justice for the formal and general education system based on the epistemological principles of Farabi justice. The research method is qualitative content analysis and deduction (practical analogy). That is, based on Frankna's deductive model, some principles have been derived from the combination of goals and preliminary foundations that can lead to the adoption of educational methods. The population of analysis was the books, commentaries and articles about Farabi's philosophy. These data were sampled purposively on the basis of research categories and were studied in depth. The purposively obtained data were continuously analyzed in parallel to data accumulation. The findings suggest that based on Farabi's epistemological foundations, justice is a natural thing in the pursuit of happiness, derived from wisdom, in favor of  reason, and is a function of general interest. Knowledge sources include sense, reason, and intuition. Types of knowledge include innate knowledge, intuition, rational knowledge, and so on. The areas of truth are knowledge of justice, adulthood and merit. Therefore, in view of the above epistemological foundations, the theoretical model of educational justice can be derived in terms of goals, principles and methods of education. Some of the ultimate and intermediate goals of this pattern are to reach the community of justice, general prosperity, virtue, and measuring people in terms of justice, rather than vice versa. Some of the principles of this pattern are: Attention to individual talents and competencies, balance of powers and avoiding extremes, rationality, informing, affection, and lack of personal and subjective look to justice. Some of the methods of this model are: method of equal distribution of facilities and resources, method of fostering talents, method of fair establishment of foundations, method of fair sympathy, and method of legitimacy in the implementation of justice. All the goals and inferred principles and methods take into account the challenges that exist in the formal education system.

Tue, 07/09/2019 - 23:23
The Present Study aimed to investigate the factors affecting religious education of Kashan University students. The research method is survey. The statistical population of the study was 300 Kashan University students who were selected in 2016-2017 academic year by partial sampling method. The results of the research indicated that female students received more points in religious courses. But the comparison of the obtained averages about the amount of religious training by age, marital status, place of residence, educational level, faculty and religion showed that the level of religious training does not differ according to these variables. In addition, the findings showed that there is a meaningful and direct relationship between the personal and academic traits of professors, family factors, regulation of university, religious training methods, content of religious texts, and general atmosphere of university from one hand, and the religious training of students from the other hand. But there was no meaningful relationship between cultural-social factors and economic-social status from one hand, and the religious training of students from the other hand.
