Education for Shared Fate Citizenship

Education for Shared Fate Citizenship

(p.80) Chapter 4 Education for Shared Fate Citizenship
Education, Justice, and Democracy

Sigal Ben Porath

University of Chicago Press

This chapter argues that the fate citizens share with each other—the institutional, historical, linguistic, cultural, territorial, and other dimensions which bind them together—should constitute the shared foundations of political membership, and that the project of defining and realizing shared national projects should be a key dimension of citizenship and citizenship education. Shared fate citizenship requires that a publicly supported education system be positioned to facilitate shared civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions, and that it views competing value systems as part of the civic sphere it teaches and endorses.
