community involvement

Report based on the premise that social good best flourishes within existing forms of community.

It argues that the stronger community feeling associated with groups which citizens attend out of self-interest – e.g. ‘clubtype’ activities – helps motivate the kind of social action that the Government wants to encourage.

The policy framework for citizenship education identifies three broad educational aims: the moral and social development of students, political literacy and community involvement. The review aims to inform the way in which citizenship education is implemented in schools, particularly in relation to curriculum content, pedagogy, leadership and management, school ethos and community relations. This systematic review was published by EPPI-Centre in 2004.
