The Moral and the Political in Global Citizenship: Appreciating Differences in Education
Veugelers, Wiel
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v9 n3-4 p473-485 2011
Schools are expected to pay attention to citizenship education, including for the global world. The concept global citizenship can get different meanings. In our theoretical orientation, we distinguish between three forms of modern global citizenship: Open global citizenship; Moral global citizenship; Social-political global citizenship. In an explorative study, we interviewed teachers on their visions and practices concerning global citizenship education. Teachers opt for moral global citizenship. In their views, an open global citizenship would neglect the moral dimensions of global citizenship. They prefer not to pay too much attention to political affairs, because of the age of students and because politics in education is a rather sensitive issue.
