Global migration has complicated the development of citizenship and citizenship education in nations around the world. Many racial, ethnic, cultural, linguistic, and religious groups are denied structural inclusion into their nation-state. Consequently, they do not internalize the values and symbols of the nation-state, develop a strong identity with it, or acquire political efficacy. James A. Banks will conceptualize this process as “failed citizenship,” and describe the role of the schools in reducing failed citizenship and in helping marginalized groups to become successful and efficacious citizens in multicultural nation-states.
