Citizen Schools

Citizen Schools

By Jamie Audsley , September 2013

Learning to Rebuild Democracy

A Citizen School is a school that explicitly creates a democratic culture through its role as a civic institution.  Jamie's research proposes that schools can be the key institution in society for fostering a democratic culture.

It makes the case for broadening the current purpose of schools to include this fostering role, and for understanding that this need not detract from – and may in fact enhance – academic or vocational purposes.

The research is the culmination of Jamie's Clore Social Fellowship, bringing together his knowledge and experience as a teacher, community organiser and in the broader education and youth sector.
