Time for tea? British values in schools

What is a 'British value'? Supporting the monarchy? Queuing? In 2014 the British Government called on schools to actively promote fundamental British values (FBVs), seeing this in part as an effective way to prevent the radicalization of young people.
FBVs are defined as democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths. Drawing on data from an ongoing project based at UCL Institute of Education (IOE), this session will explore the ways in which teachers have engaged with FBVs, and discover how they're being promoted in schools around Britain. We'll also consider how this new educational requirement affects young people's development of a citizenship identity in 21st century Britain.
