Citizenship in the press in run up to review deadline
Today’s Times Education Supplement features a comment piece from four members of Democratic Life.
David Barrs, headteacher, Anglo European School; Keith Ajegbo, former headteacher, Deptford Green School; Rachael Warwick, headteacher, Didcot Girls' School and William Atkinson, headteacher, Phoenix High School all discuss why citizenship education is vital to their school and the National Curriculum. William Atkinson talks specifically about the Giving Nation programme. It's great to see this in print just in time for the review deadline!
Also this week SecEd ran a story featuring a comment from Kate Allen, Director of Amnesty on why citizenship is essential if young people are to be engaged and play an active role in society
