||This chapter is included in the Routledge International Companion to Multicultural Education, edited by James A. Banks, former President of AERA and known as the father of multicultural education. To be invited to contribute is itself a mark of the highest esteem. I have co-authored two chapters in the volume. The chapters are refereed by Banks and other slected international experts. The only other IOE contributors are Professors Gillborn and Youdell, who have a joint chapter. This chapter is a thoroughly revised and updated version of an article first published in Oxford Review of Education in 2001 which has been cited 44 times according to Google Scholar. It is the only comparison of citizenship education in schools in France and England. One of its main points is the extent to which citizenship education is de-politicised in England. In France the positive role of trade unions is stressed, for example. This has been a revelation to many readers. This paper has been closed because the permission of the publisher has not been verified.
