Debates continue internationally amongst governments, academics, curriculum leaders and educators, about the scope, purpose and enactment of citizenship education in schools. This paper draws on discussions of citizenship education in multiple communities, to consider what’s next and what’s possible for civics and citizenship education in Australia. It explores the kinds of professional knowledge, skills, conceptual frameworks and dispositions which Australian teachers need to educate for democratic citizenship effectively.
