New Labour, Communitarianism and Citizenship Education in England and Wales
Dunn, Andrew; Burton, Diana
Education, Citizenship and Social Justice, v6 n2 p169-179 Jul 2011
This article posits a connection between the influence of communitarianism on New Labour's ideology and the content of citizenship education in England and Wales. We first describe and problematize communitarianism, drawing on both UK and US thinkers, and then relate our findings to literature on citizenship education. We conclude by suggesting that the influence of communitarianism could be researched with teachers of citizenship to illuminate the extent of its practical manifestation. (Contains 1 note.)
