Political Education in Canadian Schools: An Assessment of Social Studies and Political Science Courses and Pedagogy.
Conley, Marshall Wm.; Osborne, Kenneth
International Journal of Political Education, v6 n1 p65-85 Apr 1983
Political education in Canada remains, for the most part, in the mould of traditional civics. Textbooks concentrate on legal-historical descriptions of government institutions. Students learn about politics through history or social studies courses which promote nationalism rather than political efficacy or literacy. Most teachers lack training in political science.
