Citizen Curriculum

I think that the education group should be aware that the newly introduced citizenship curriculum provides a ‘golden opportunity to politicize the environment for young people’ (Andrew Dobson, 2003). Sustainable development is a section within the curriculum and also it encourages community action and involvement with local community groups and projects (step up Transition Town Brixton). I think that if you are working to develop material for schools then material for citizenship lessons would be good. However i have spoken to several teachers who say that material is often not suitable and so when material is developed it is essential that a teacher is consulted. Further more teachers tell me that the speakers and workshops that they get in to schools for the citizenship curriculum delivery are mostly shaped by who offers themselves for free and at flexible times that fit with the school timetable.
