Citizenship education has attracted a good deal of interest in recent times, both in Australia and overseas. The fundamental premise of the research detailed in this book is that children’s schooling experience gives them the opportunity to make increasingly sophisticated comments about the ways in which institutions are constructed and organisational life is lived. The analyses presented here reveal that children do already know something about institutional hierarchies, governance and power. However, these perceptions have not been previously systematically marshalled in ways that provoke the sort of analysis that is fundamental to democratic practices that, arguably, should be significant in the project of education for citizenship.
