"Hopkins has written an insightful and interesting book, raised a range of issues with further and adult education and offered a challenge to improve the quality of citizenship education. It will no doubt provide a platform for further exploration and discussion to come. ... book will enable interested teachers to explore the possible spaces for citizenship education in their places of work. ... it both adds to practice and promotes the application of philosophy of education to a neglected field." (Richard Davies, Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain, philosophy-of-education.org, June, 2015)
This book offers a timely, engaging and insightful discussion of citizenship education in further and adult education in the UK. Drawing on contemporary work in political philosophy, democratic theory and history and philosophy of education, the author makes important suggestions as to how to incorporate and embed democratic citizenship within a range of further and adult education institutions and practices. The book will be of interest to educators, students, policy-makers and educational theorists.
