journal contributionposted on 2023-05-17, 16:03 authored by Peter BrettPeter Brett
This article explores a comparatively undocumented gap in the history of citizenship education in England. Drawing upon archival material from the Civic Education League, the study analyses calls for citizenship education around the time of the First World War and its aftermath. On the face of it social and political circumstances after 1918 were propitious for citizenship education. The article goes on to explain why arguments in favour of enhancing citizenship education in schools failed to gain significant purchase.
