"This paper has undertaken to explore several areas around identity and diversity. It has outlined the political context of the Ajegbo Report and indicated that whilst politicians may have willed the ends of mutual understanding and a common sense of shared British values they have an under-developed appreciation of the educational means. In particular there is a lack of understanding of the relationship between History and Citizenship education. The key recommendations from the Ajegbo Report are summarised and underlined. The paper goes on to explore the reception of the Ajegbo Report by the media and the wider educational world. Those newspapers and commentators unconvinced of the merits of Citizenship education or misconceiving of its purpose and focus were unlikely to be converted by the Report. The concept of â€˜Britishnessâ€™ received a mainly deserved mauling. It is important that young people are able to transcend narrow national perspectives in learning about identity and diversity and root their thinking within a more global perspective of human rights. A fourth section reviewed the criticisms that have been made of what the Crick Report had to say about identity and diversity and whilst acknowledging the validity of much of the critique, underlined the pragmatic calculations that Crickâ€™s advisory group had to make if their broader recommendations on Citizenship education were to gain purchase and receive statutory force.
The final section identifies seven key strategic messages from the Ajegbo Report and develops suggestions for ways in which they might be taken forward"
