Abstract

The paper reports an action research study with social studies teachers aimed at facilitating democratic citizenship education in Pakistani classrooms. The findings indicate that teachers who desire to teach for democratic citizenship are constrained by school structures and processes. Action research facilitates more democratic teaching practices and changes in the material conditions and practices of school.
