Decolonized Citizenship Education — Citizenship Education in Hong Kong Schools after 1997

曾榮光(Wing-Kwong TSANG)

摘要

根據「公民權責」理論及公民教育的有關文獻,本文首先將提出一個理解公民教育內容的普遍架構。就這個架構,本文將進一步分析香港學校公民教育的特殊狀況。本文會指出香港學校制度所施行的公民教育是一種疏離於本土民族及本地政治的教育,同時亦是一種培養子民而非公民的教育。根據以上討論,本文將提出一套非殖民化的公民教育的內容與形式,以期引發我們對九七後香港學校公民教育的討論。

Abstract

Based on literature of theories of citizenship and citizenship education, a general framework of the content of citizenship education is outlined in the first part of the article. In light of this general framework, the particular ,features of the citizenship education in Hong Kong are then explicated. It is asserted that the kind of citizenship education practised within the Hong Kong school system can be characterized as education which alienates from the indigenous nationally and local politics and which fosters subject rather than citizen. Based on the precedent discussion, content and form of a decolonized citizenship education for Hong Kong is put forth. It is hoped that proposal will initiate discussion on the nature and features of citizenship education in Hong Kong schools after 1997.
