Beyond Civics: Paying Attention to the Contexts of Citizenship Education.
Sears, Alan; Perry, Mark
Education Canada, v40 n3 p28-31 Fall 2000
Too often citizenship education in schools is sterile and removed from real issues--it is designed to teach about democracy, not practice it. Classroom practices are less important than school culture and classroom climate. Students need to see and experience democracy in their schools; teacher education programs, educational systems, and high stakes tests should recognize that. (TD)
