"This research examined the ways politically active secondary teachers, involved either in formal politics or in social movements, practiced citizenship education in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and Toronto, Canada. The aim was to
explore the complex ways and multiple spaces in which these teachersâ€™ roles as both citizens and citizenship educators intersected within the local contexts.
The premise is that the local political and educational contexts are critical in shaping citizenship education practices. These teachers are political actors, and it is in dynamic relation to local and national politics that they
developed their political ideologies and values, particularly in terms of the ways that they understand the concepts of â€śdemocracyâ€ť and â€ścitizenshipâ€ť in relation to education. In this regard, the author understood pedagogy as fundamentally political, which involves the values,ideologies, theories, and discourses surrounding teaching and schooling ".
