International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICSS) - Report on initial findings

International Civic and Citizenship Education Study
The 2009 IEA study of civic and citizenship education (ICCS) investigated the ways in which young people are prepared to undertake their roles as citizens in modern societies. It reports on student knowledge and understanding of civics and citizenship as well as student attitudes, perceptions and activities related to civics and citizenship.

The report from ICCS is based on data from more than 140,000 students in more than 5,000 schools from 38 countries. These data are augmented by data from more than 62,000 teachers in those schools and further contextual data collected from school principals and national research centers.

The report is an important reference document for EDC/HRE, but once again shows the urgency to go for more reseach in the field of non-formsal educational settings.
