From the Paper:

"The Crick report, which laid the foundations for the Citizenship Curriculum, suggests strong reasoning why Citizenship should be established within the Curriculum and why teachers should be prepared to tackle specific issues within society. Fundamentally, the report highlights the importance of discussing issues of sportsmanship, fair play and political and religious concerns, either because the subject could directly affect them or because they will, in some way in a democratic society, have opportunities to take part in influencing the outcome."
