Citizenship education. Requirement of the civil society

Gloria Pérez Serrano


The present society demands a new type of education if we want to create citizens fully conscious of their rights and duties. In a democratic society the creation of a good citizen involves preparing him or her to take part in the development of the community as well as enhancing the participating structures in which he or she can get involved. Education requires significant changes in focusing the methodological approaches and the achievement of major efforts aimed at the integration of global values in the process of teaching-learning.

In the dawn of a new millennium, we face the challenge of re-measuring the course of education. We must consider that, the strength of market and the successfulness of our democratic way of government depend on the vitality of our civil society, considered as the inexhaustible source of our being humans.
