Citizenship has been taught in school around the world for many years now, and is due to be introduced to the UK curriculum over the next few years. Teachers, Headteachres, administrators and policy makers have the opportunity to develop citizenship education programs for all their students. This book takes a pragmatic approach to the issue, and answers many of the crucial questions that will be emerging: what definitions of citizenship are to be followed, and how is citizenship taught? What approaches will be taken by teachers and what is the likely shape of best practice for citizenship education? How will the issue impact on schools and teacher training, and how should they rise to the challenge? What are the key factors influencing or threatening the development of good citizens? Based on the analysis of data collected form over 700 teachers the book provides real solutions to questions raised by citizenship education, and makes recommendations for practice in schools and in the training and development of teachers.
