The draft Strategy contains a description of the state of civic education and certain areas of its implementation

The Ministry of Education and Science has developed a Strategy for the Development of Civic Education

The Ministry of Education has developed a draft Strategy for the Development of Civic Education. The relevant document was published by the agency for public discussion.

The purpose of the Strategy for the Development of Civic Education is to create an organizational and legal framework for citizens to obtain competencies aimed at implementing and protecting their rights and responsibilities in society, respect for diversity, involvement in active political and social life, etc.

The authors of the strategy, referring to the results of sociological research of the DOCCU project, note that one third of teachers do not implement civic education in their professional activities, as they consider it the work of other subject teachers.

Moreover, 25% of teachers called the broadest concept of civic education “patriotism”, 20% – “morality and ethics”, and only 25% – “citizenship” as the awareness of each citizen of their rights and responsibilities towards the state, society …

Sociological research of the International Republican Institute shows that more than 95% of society has no experience of participation in public organizations, and hence the experience of democratic self-government and coexistence in their social groups.

The authors of the strategy also state that the lack of a unified approach to determining the content of civic education leads to a lack of a holistic system of civic education and creates a fragmentation of civic education activities and a lack of a coherent vision of including civic competences with all educational standards in education and training programs.
