"Learners develop understanding of the key concepts of democracy and justice as they question and reflect on what may be fair and reasonable in different situations, explore the likely impact of decisions, and consider how the rights and responsibilities of individuals and groups are effected. Through in-depth research and enquiry, learners develop analytical and evaluative skills to ensure that their arguments are informed, clear and coherent. Pupils demonstrate toleration of different views, including those with which they may not agree, and they develop understanding of how different views are formed and influenced.

(...) Citizenship inspires pupils to think about their role in society and in the wider world, and about how their decisions and actions can make a difference. Pupils engage with a wide range of political, social and ethical dilemmas that affect individuals, communities and the environment. Learners think about issues in new and critical ways and are willing to challenge ideas, policies, behaviours and actions with which they disagree. Pupils gain a sense of empowerment and achievement by participating in activities where they:

  • try to make a difference to the lives of others
  • contribute to real decision-making
  • are involved in bringing about change to policy or practice."

Los ingleses llevan años impartiendo "Citizenship" (Ciudadanía) y no ha habido conflicto alguno. Aquí se hicieron las cosas mal desde el principio y así estamos. En vez de consensuar unos valores constitucionales e inspirados en los derechos humanos, se ha utilizado la dichosa asignatura como arma arojadiza entre los partidos. Y así nos va. Otra vez el necesario consenso entre los partidos nacionales.

La sentencia del Supremo igual lleva a otra cuestión: los padres no están autorizados para impedir que sus hijos acudan al centro escolar. Para una asignatura o para todas. Eso quizá beneficie a muchos alumnos, y especialmente a algunas alumnas.

Sí, las niñas gitanas desaparecen de la escuela sistemáticamente a los 14 años de edad. Y a eso nadie le ha puesto coto aún.
