謝均才(Kwan-Choi TSE)




The four Chinese societies across the Taiwan Straits (Chinese Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau) have undergone significant social and political changes after the Second World War. How have these changes affected the shaping of civic education in these places? This article depicts the socio-political situations and civic education of the four places in the post-war era and their recent changes. It analyzes the elements of nationalistic education and democratic education focussing on the provision, objectives, and scope of the formal curriculum relating to civic education in these places.
