Implement Civics and Citizenship Education

Nidhi Sharama


Abstract: The renewed interest in Civics and Citizenship Education (CCE) in schools. Debates about how CCE should and can be implemented have diversified, as teachers have developed their views about appropriate classroom and whole school approaches. Their rationale for CCE goes far beyond the 'civic deficit model' as a justification for curriculum space for CCE and as well, important links to other curriculum priorities have been identified. The teachers argue that the development of civic knowledge is an important part of CCE, they also express strong views about the role of CCE in empowering students to be able to participate as active and informed citizens in their own local, national and global communities. In the paper, we present and analyse the opinions of teachers, and discuss their views of CCE.
