Citizenship Education in Small States

image of Citizenship Education in Small States

Identity and diversity in all its forms present major challenges to countries seeking to best equip citizens with the skills to participate effectively in their diverse societies. The project on Citizenship education in the Commonwealth is one of the followup activities being undertaken by the Commonwealth Secretariat in response to a mandate from Commonwealth Heads of Government and Ministers of Education. It is a component of the Secretariat’s education programme, examining how values are transmitted in society. These books focus on the outcomes of this project in the respective countries, providing valuable insights into the strengthening of values in a society. They set out the strategies and actions needed to support small states wishing to promote the values of good citizenship.

Conclusions

An examination of both government and non-government education programmes indicate that citizenship education is promoted through a variety of modes, strategies and conventions directly and indirectly, overtly and covertly. From the standpoint of government agencies, religious organisations, and Youth Can Move the World, programmes are implemented across all the regions of Guyana implying that citizenship education is promoted universally across the country.
