Civic education in primary and secondary schools in the Republic of Serbia
An evaluation of the first year, 2001-2002, and recommendations
This report is an evaluation of the introduction of Civic Education (CE) to the school curriculum in the Republic of Serbia.
In November 2001, Civic Education was offered as an optional subject to pupils in the first grade of primary school (7-8 year-olds) and the first year of secondary school (14-15 year-olds).
Classes operated outside the normal timetable and the syllabi for Civic Education were developed from existing NGO programmes.
Teachers of Civic Education were selected from existing staff within schools and received extensive training through workshops provided by the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES).
