This book theorizes a philosophical framework for educational policy and practice in Muslim Mindanao. It offers a critical historical and ethnographic analysis to deploy education as a tool to mitigate the conflict and examines recent efforts to integrate Islamic education before proposing a philosophy of prophetic pragmatism as a more promising framework for educational policy and practice that respects the religious identity. It represents a timely contribution to the search for educational policies and practices more responsive to the needs of Muslim communities emerging from conflict in the BARMM region.
