Failed Citizenship, Civic Engagement, and Education
Banks, James A.
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v51 n4 p151-154 2015
Many racial, ethnic, cultural, linguistic, and religious groups are denied structural inclusion into their nation-state. Consequently, they do not internalize the values and symbols of the nation-state, develop a strong identity with it, or acquire political efficacy. The author conceptualizes this process as "failed citizenship," compares and contrasts it with "successful citizenship," and describes the role of schools in reducing failed citizenship and helping marginalized groups become successful and efficacious citizens in multicultural nation-states.
