"The Scottish Curriculum for Excellence lists âresponsible citizenshipâ as one of the four capacities which it envisages that all children and young people should
develop. By understanding citizenship as a capacity and by seeing it as a concern that should permeate the whole curriculum, the Scottish approach to education
for citizenship is distinctly different from approaches developed in many other countries around the world. This paper provides a critical analysis of key-documents
in the development of the Scottish approach over the past decade. It argues that the Scottish approach is characterised by a focus on individuals and their capacities, by a broad conception of the domain of citizenship, and by an emphasis on activity and community. The analysis not only reveals something about the particular choices implied in the Scottish approach but also hints at some of the more problematic sides of education for citizenship in Scotland, most notably the risk that citizenship focuses too much on the social and too little on the political dimensions of what it
means to be a citizen in a pluralist democracy."
