Educators, politicians and the media are using the concept of citizenship in new contexts and giving it new meanings. Citizenship can serve to unite a diverse population or to marginalise and exclude. The authors argue that, with the introduction of citizenship in school curricula, there is an urgent need for developing the concept of cosmopolitan citizenship. This book is designed to support educators in understanding the links between global change and the everyday realities of teachers and learners. * How can citizenship in schools meet the needs of learners in multicultural and globalised communities?* Is it possible for schools to resolve the tensions between demands for effective discipline and pressures to be more inclusive?* How can school leaders enable young people to learn skills for democracy and participation?Changing Citizenship explores the role that schools can play in creating a new and inclusive vision of society. It will be compelling reading for all concerned about social justice and young people's participation in decision-making.
