dc.description.abstractThis study explores the views of mavo teachers (middelbaar algemeen voortgezet onderwijs, middle general secondary education) on citizenship education in the Netherlands. In this ethnographic study, the informants were 24 mavo teachers and results have been obtained through observation, informal conversations, a questionnaire, a focus group discussion and open interviews. The findings that will be presented indicate that 1) the multidimensionality of the citizenship concept that is described in social science literature is also present in the way mavo teachers discuss this concept, in which a distinction is perceived in a formal, identificational and practised dimension of citizenship; that 2) mavo teachers tend to compare their view on citizenship education with the government’s perspectives and by doing so, they criticize the design and implementation of citizenship education. 3) mavo teachers emphasize the responsibility of parents in citizenship education and plead for a parents-teacher collaboration in organizing the implementation of citizenship education.
