Indiana University School of Education professor Bradley Levinson is the latest IU faculty member to receive a prestigious Fulbright fellowship.
The fellowship will allow Levinson to travel to three states in Mexico to study how the country is teaching democratic citizenship in secondary education. Levinson says Mexican society has recently been becoming more and more democratic. He says the Mexican education system is catching up with a program called Formacion Civica y Etica, or Civic and Ethical Education. Levinson says Mexico has a clear goal with the program.
Levinson says America could learn something from Mexico’s program. He says he would argue that Mexico is ahead of the US in teaching democracy to its citizens. Levinson is 1 of 21 recipients of Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad fellowships awarded by the US Department of Education.
