In this unique examination of education for citizenship, Derek Heater covers two and a half millennia of history encompassing every continent. Education for citizenship is considered from its classical origins through to ideas of world citizenship and multiculturalism which are relevant today. The book reveals the constants of motives, policies, recommendations and practices in this field and the variables determined by political, social and economic circumstances, which in turn illustrate the reasons behind education for citizenship today. Sections covered include: * Classical origins * The age of rebellions and revolutions * Education for liberal democracy * Totalitarianism and transitions * Multiple citizenship education. A History of Education for Citizenship will be of interest to teachers and students of citizenship, particularly those concerned with citizenship education. It will also be of interest to those working in the field of politics of education and history of education.
These reasons for studying the past correspond to three approaches to history :

"Citizenship After Liberalism" explores contemporary challenges to the liberal concept of citizenship, both philosophical and practical. The authors question whether liberalism has the resources to meet those challenges, and explore what might replace it, if it doesn't. The essays approach this issue from a variety of interpretive perspectives and geographical locations. The volume integrates different literatures, including political theory, political philosophy, international relations, and comparative politics.

The Government has decided that ‘British values’ are democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths. Since 2014, teachers have been required to promote them in schools to all pupils. What are the implications of this for teachers, pupils, and the rest of us? Discussing a broad mix of issues – citizenship, diversity, social class, ethnicity, religion, counter-extremism, affect, and community cohesion - this book discusses the political, social and cultural contexts. Drawing on observations of teaching, as well as teachers’ views, it analyses how teachers make sense of their mandatory promotion, and what ideas of citizenship and identity they offer to their pupils.

This brief volume provides a critical defense of the U.S. Supreme Court's view -- expressed in its San Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez ruling -- that education is not a fundamental right deserving protection under the fourteenth amendment. Carcieri (political science, University of Tennessee, Knoxville) considers the theoretical and historical relationship between education and democracy, examining the role of the Sophists in classical Athens and the view of education present in the writings of Jefferson and Madison.

In recent years a number of political and educational leaders and groups have urged the nation's public schools to place a greater emphasis on teaching civic values and on educating students to become citizens. This book puts forth the civic values and ideas that schools should be teaching. The volume is not a handbook or curriculum guide, but is designed to broaden the perspective of curriculum specialists, textbook authors, teachers, and educational policymakers. In the first three chapters of this four-chapter book, the study of and learning about history, the study and learning about constitutional principles, and the study and learning about conceptions of citizenship are examined. The final chapter offers a set of 12 ideas and civic values that should suffuse teaching and learning in the schools. These 12 values are justice, equality, authority, participation, truth, patriotism, freedom, diversity, privacy, due process, property, and human rights. (DB)

The professional mind-set prevailing in higher education today often ignores the "common goods" that only democratic self-rule can provide. Why? Some say the professional mind-set is profoundly antidemocratic, especially when it presumes that specialized knowledge and experience is a sufficient substitute for a democratic process of participating equals. Although there are currently many higher education experiments in which the public does set the agenda for research and actually conducts much of the work, there are still too many projects ostensibly done for the public with nothing to be done by the public. How, then, can the academy, with such a mind-set and its preoccupation with hustling prospective students and chasing after academic luminaries, be of any help in renewing democratic practices? In Agent of Democracy: Higher Education and the HEX Journey, editors David W. Brown and Deborah Witte, a Kettering Foundation program officer, explore the linkages that have been forged between higher education and a "healthy democracy." This volume celebrates and expands on the journal Higher Education Exchange, an annual publication of the Kettering Foundation edited by Brown and Witte. For more than 10 years, HEX has published case studies, analysis, news, and ideas about efforts within higher education to develop more democratic societies. Agent of Democracy features essays by 10 thoughtful theorists and practitioners whose work regularly appears in the Higher Education Exchange. Their work is a contribution to the resurgent movement bent on strengthening higher education. Chapters in this volume include: "The Engaged University: A Tale of Two Generations," Peter Levine "The Limits of Public Work: A Critical Reflection on the 'Engaged University'," Mary Stanley "Should Higher Education Have a Civic Mission?," R. Claire Snyder "Public Work: Civic Populism versus Technocracy in Higher Education," Harry C. Boyte "Public Work at Colgate: An Interview with Adam Weinberg" "Reconstructing a Democratic Tradition of Public Scholarship in the Land-Grant System," Scott Peters "A Portrait of a University as a Young Citizen," Jeremy Cohen "The Makings of a Public and the Role of the Academy," Noelle McAfee "The New England Center for Civic Live--A Decade of Making a Difference," Douglas F.
