Abstract:

table I would like to present findings of my research for PhD thesis regarding the influence of neoliberal ideology on the programs of citizenship education in secondary schools in Wielkopolska in Poland and in Ontario in Canada. The purpose of my doctoral study was to: elicit the views of students in secondary schools in Poland and Ontario/Canada regarding the changing nature of citizenship and citizenship education; compare students’ views with the views of teachers who teach citizenship education in social studies courses to identify the intersection of agreement or consensus on the changing nature of citizenship and citizenship education; make recommendations for teacher education curricula and educational policy experts to better prepare programs for citizenship education in secondary schools in Poland and Ontario/Canada. This study employed a mixed- methods approach, combining qualitative data from observation and interviews with analysis of program documents using CAD (critical analysis discourse) and quantitative analysis of survey data. I argue that although the specific socio-economic and political context in Poland and Ontario have conditioned the understanding of citizenship education as stated in the documents, the economic priorities of neoliberal globalization have provided a powerful frame of references for educational reform. The chief question underlying my research is to what extent pressures to create a knowledge- based economy have influenced the articulation and implementation of citizenship in the educational policy documents.
