MORA, David. Democratic education and democratic schools for the construction of critical citizenship. Rev. de Inv. Educ. [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.2, pp.11-44. ISSN 1997-4043.

This article develops a critical and socio-political reflection of the relationship between democracy, citizenship and education, with a basis in the combination of theoretical contributions of western scholarship and the progress of the actual praxis related to the processes of socio-political changes in Latin America and the Caribbean. The concept of democracy and the forms of social, political and economic organization are being discussed from the perspective of conventional democratic conceptions, yet with a constant view of the horizon of revolutionary democracy that transforms the realities and conditions of inequality, injustice and predominant exclusions. This work discusses, with the support of many authors related with the subject matter, the importance and the meaning of critical democratic education for the formation of a participative and emancipated citizenship. To this end, we analyze the topic of democratic schools within the framework of socio-communitarian and liberating education. The article is divided into the following parts: democracy as basis and life form of the construction of critical and revolutionary citizenship, democracy as a socio-cultural value, institutional schooling as epicenter of democratic formation and, finally, the institutionalization of democratic pedagogy and didactic based on the tradition and experience of democratic schools.

Palabras clave : citizenship; critical citizenship; revolutionary citizenship; citizenship and political formation; democratic schools.
