A Framework for Citizenship Education in Sierra Leone

image of A Framework for Citizenship Education in Sierra Leone

This book has been written to lay the foundations of a single curriculum framework for citizenship education in Sierra Leone. It is a direct result of a consultative process aimed at complementing and consolidating a number of citizenshiprelated initiatives within and outside government circles in Sierra Leone. The framework it presents looks at some significant and critical themes, and goes on to set parameters and suggest guidelines to ensure its successful implementation.




The purpose of this chapter is to lay a solid foundation for the contextualisation of the rationale for the development of Sierra Leone's citizenship education. In doing so, the report identifies two particular periods – during and after the civil war. Every attempt is made to avoid rewriting the history of the Sierra Leone conflict, but emphasis is placed upon appropriate selected themes.
