Abstract

This article examines political education, particularly regarding such matters as discussion of controversial issues, neutrality of teachers and the merits of team teaching. Data were obtained from a questionnaire survey and in-depth interviews with students who had completed a political education course taught by the authors. It is hoped that the paper will assist understanding of the complexities of political education on the one hand, and provide practical recommendations to educators working with political education on the other.
