Perspectives from Past and Present on Moral and Citizenship Education in Poland

Journal of Moral Education 21 (3):225-233 (1992)
Abstract Contemporary Poland faces the task of educational reform in which moral and citizenship issues seem to be crucial. The article describes how the decline of public virtues prompted efforts to create a modern school system and to form citizens of a new type in late 18th?century Poland. It shows how Polish Romantic literature became the basis of moral education when these efforts were rejected and replaced by denationalisation policies and pressures to create obedient performers of others? will by neighbouring powers who partitioned the country. It is argued that this Romantic tradition still has a significant role to play in present?day moral education. It relates to the need for a return to basic values of respect for others and tolerance on which democratic education could be founded
