Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

As the international community seeks to invest in the creation of quality sustainable ECCD communities in majority world contexts, Sen’s capabilities approach (2005, 2009) offers an evaluative lens in which to approach individuals abilities to function in quality processes within their own communities. In other words, going beyond just providing equal access and inputs, a capabilities social-justice approach seeks to further understand an individual’s access to equitable opportunities for economic and social progress, it is a tool and a framework “within which to conceptualize and evaluate these phenomena (social inequalities)” (Roebyn, 2005, p. 94). It is argued that a child's well-being is related to how constructions of quality ECCD have value and can be acted upon by all community stakeholders for healthy, safe, and engaged lives.
Therefore in this presentation three key elements of Sen's capabilities approach will be explored with respect to ECCD stakeholders in majority world communities. The first concept freedom-- the freedom an individual has to convert his/her capabilities into actions. In other words the freedom an individual has to act upon what they value within their ECCD community. The second concept diversity-- how the diversity of social arrangements affect an individuals freedom. In particular addressing structures of power and privilege that may influence ones freedom. And the third concept value-- the value stakeholders place on children’s education and well-being. In order to illustrate how these three elements of Sen's capabilities approach can be used as an evaluative framework to explore societal inequities examples from research conducted in two ECCD Filipino communities will be presented.
