Goal-Driven, Girl-Driven: Citizenship Education in an English Independent School
Leighton, Ralph
Citizenship, Social and Economics Education, v12 n2 p71-85 Jun 2013
Numerous studies have identified the nature and effect of the various versions of the national curriculum for citizenship education in state schools in England. However, considerably less attention has been given to independent schools in England, even though they do not have to follow the national curriculum and their pupils will go on to play significant roles in society. Interviews were conducted with staff and pupils at one school, and relevant school documentation was scrutinised, in order to map and understand the place of citizenship education in one of England's independent schools. The main purpose of the study was to gain some understanding of how independent school pupils perceive and are prepared for their roles as citizens of influence.
