City Class to boost citizenship culture among students

Citizens have a key role in building a better society by making positive changes in the community where they live. Citizenship education involves developing the knowledge that enables people to assume responsibility for their communities.

Iran (IMNA) - Children are the current citizens in their own right, with the capacity to air their views and participate in the civic and cultural life of their city. Children who learn about citizenship early in life develop a stronger commitment to their community. City Class is a school subject that helps pupils to play a full part in society, as active and responsible citizens.

Referring to the implementation of a project entitled "City Class" in Isfahan schools, the head of the research center of Isfahan Islamic City Council Mostafa Nabati Nejad said, “including the citizenship education in schools’ curriculum aims at promoting socio-cultural moral codes.”
