Understanding the effects of schools on students citizenship outcomes: characteristics of the school community

PhD candidate: Willemijn Rinnooy Kan, MSc

This project consists of two parts. Firstly, I will conduct case studies (N=8) aimed at identifying school factors relevant for citizenship learning. My focus in this research is on the characteristics of the school community, and specifically on if , and how, the schools’ vision on citizenship of students is internalized and ‘lived’ within the school community by school leaders and teachers.

Secondly, this project contributes to a large-scale quantitative data-collection (80 schools, 5200 students, age 14-15) and analyses the data with regard to the effects of the characteristics of the school community on students´ citizenship outcomes.
