Anke Munniksma - Preparing youth to be part of an increasingly diverse society in schools in Amsterdam
Foundations for educational policy and practice.
Schools have the task to invest in citizenship education which equips students with the necessary competences to function in a pluralistic society. An important part of citizenship competences pertains to dealing with differences, for which schools can function as a practice ground. However, whereas heterogeneous schools offer a natural context to practice dealing with differences, these opportunities are limited in homogeneous schools. This project documents in what ways schools with different student populations fulfill their citizenship education task, regarding dealing with differences. To this end, a questionnaire study will be conducted among primary and secondary school principals and teachers in the municipality of Amsterdam. By providing an overview of citizenship education practices of schools in Amsterdam, the findings of this project provide foundations for educational policy and practice.
