(p.293) 16 Education for Citizenship
Politics in the Vernacular

Will Kymlicka (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores issues on citizenship education. It shows how liberal citizenship is more complicated than often realized, and why schools play a key role in educating children for citizenship. It considers three controversies in ethnoculturally diverse societies: whether citizenship education requires common schooling, whether the promotion of responsible citizenship requires the promotion of personal autonomy, and whether promoting a shared civic identity requires teaching both shared political values and specific national or cultural identities.

Keywords:   citizenship education, liberal citizenship, ethnocultural groups, national identity, cultural identity
