Democracy, Citizenship Education and Inclusion: A Multi-Dimensional Approach
Grossman, David L.
Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, v38 n1 p35-46 Mar 2008
Both democratic citizenship education and inclusion share a common ethos and language based on concerns for human rights, social justice, and a sense of community. Both aim at the building of democratic relationships. But it is fair to say that for a long time citizenship educators and advocates of inclusion have either spoken past each other, or have not communicated or articulated their arguments. This essay offers a multi-dimensional framework under which citizenship educators and advocates of inclusion can share a common agenda, seeking socially just and democratic schools.
