Not Aliens: Primary School Children and Citizenship/PHSE Curriculum

The Citizenship curriculum has been drawn up with little regard for the views and experiences of primary school children. Yet children have clear and often strong views about many issues with which Citizenship/PSHE is concerned - about friendship, family and the politics of family life, about gender and sex, race and ethnicity, and about the environment. Hilary Claire's research with 8 to 11 year olds in inner city schools reveals a knowledge and sophisticated discourse that is often at variance with the official agenda regarding social education. It also demonstrates the level of debate that is possible with young children. This is a book for all those who work with primary age children, whether in schools or other agencies, and for the student teachers and their trainers.
