While we teach children physics and poetry, we shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that the goal of education is to create citizens who will create a just and flourishing society. For that, not only do we need to teach subjects such as mathematics, we need to teach the art of citizenship itself. I have been working for a few months on a citizenship learning platform called Praja Factory, whose goal is to teach us how to be citizens in the full sense of that term. The site is still in its infancy, but I would love it if:
- You give me feedback and/or suggest new topics for the site.
- Ask and answer questions.
- Better if you have an hour or so a week to volunteer and contribute.
- Even Better if you are working in a school or a community and want to get children in the school or community involved in this project.
