A study of nineteen Catholic schools and how they prepare students for citizenship in the local community, the nation and the wider world. This new study describes how schools approach Citizenship-Education both as a designated subject in the timetable and across the whole curriculum. The contribution that Religious-Education makes to formation for citizenship is explored in some depth; and a rich variety of extra curricular activities (eg school councils, prefect systems, mentoring programmes, activities in the local community and international projects) are examined for the contribution they make to preparing young people for citizenship.The book provides: a major research based contribution to the debate on faith-based education; a new dimension to the existing literature on Citizenship Education; evidence based research in 19 Catholic Schools involving 103 teachers; an exploration of Catholic schools' contribution to the common good of society; an analysis of how Catholic Schools have implemented Citizenship Education; a range of projects which develop active citizenship in the community, nationally and globally; an examination of the contribution of RE to Citizenship Education; and, survey of 1409 students' perceptions, experiences, values and beliefs.
