Abstract


The purpose of this study is to investigate the values of primary school teachers on issues related to citizenship and more specifically the recording of significance of certain values in their personal lives, the importance of actions which are associated with citizenship education, and finally to indicate the frequency with which they perform certain actions in their classroom. The survey was conducted in the spring of 2013, using a questionnaire with closed questions. In our research took part 218 teachers (kindergarten teachers-primary teachers) who were asked to indicate the degree of their agreement, the degree of significance of certain proposals as long as the degree of frequency in related activities with civic education. Based on the assumption that the theory differs from practice, while we were analyzing our research  it was thought best to not just settle for the influence of sociocultural characteristics on the values of teachers, but to compare them opinions with their actions.
