Abstract

Political literacy in a democratic South Africa

In a democracy every enfranchised citizen has an equal say in government, differences are resolved through debate and persuasion and the citizen must have the knowledge to participate in government and to debate differences. When a child is educated in political literacy, a positive contribution to democracy is possible. Compulsory political literacy programmes in schools can prepare the broad masses in South Africa for participation in a democratically elected government.
