Last month I published alongside my annual report a subject report on the development of citizenship in schools. The report celebrates the success of some schools in implementing the citizenship curriculum. It praises those schools where there have been substantial developments in the subject, and which now go a long way towards fulfilling national curriculum requirements. In the report, we are critical of schools which have not taken citizenship seriously, either through reluctance or lack of capacity to make appropriate provision in the curriculum. Citizenship is marginalized (v.边缘化) in the curriculum in one-fifth of schools. It is less well established in the curriculum than other subjects, and less well taught, and some critics have seized on this as a reason for wanting to step back from supporting it. Yet, the progress made to date by the more committed schools suggests that the reasons for introducing citizenship are both worthwhile and can be fulfilled, given the time and resources. Indeed, those reasons are given added weight by national and global events of the past few months. While not claiming too much, citizenship can address core skills (n.核心技巧) , attitudes, and values that young people need to consider as they come to terms with a changing world.
上个月,我与年度报告一起发布了有关学校公民发展的主题报告。该报告庆祝了一些学校在实施公民课程方面的成功。它赞扬那些在该学科上取得了长足发展的学校,这些学校现在对满足国家课程要求有很大帮助。在报告中,我们批评那些由于不愿或缺乏能力在课程中提供适当规定而没有认真对待公民的学校。在五分之一的学校中,公民权在课程中处于边缘地位。与其他学科相比,它在课程中的地位较差,而且教学也不那么出色,并且一些批评家已将其视为要退出支持该计划的原因。然而,迄今投入更多的学校所取得的进展表明,在有时间和资源的情况下,引入公民身份的理由既值得,也可以实现。确实,过去几个月的国家和全球事件使这些原因更加重要。公民身份虽然要求不高,但可以解决年轻人在适应不断变化的世界时需要考虑的核心技能,态度和价值观。
