Education seeks knowledge in students and establishes a connection between learning and real life. Education should promote students’ rights, freedoms, and equality, practice a healthy life, make decisions based on logical analysis and develop the capacity for sustainable development of individuals, societies, and nations based on scientific analysis. Similarly, students are expected to develop moral conduct, social harmony, and sensitivity to the ecological balance, and the ability to commit to lasting peace.
Education should prepare citizens who use modern knowledge, skills, information and communication technology, practice self-reliant and business-oriented skills, respect the nation, nationality, and national ideals, adopt socially acceptable conduct and work culture, and be tolerant. Similarly, civic readiness is expected to contribute to building a self-reliant, patriotic, change-oriented, thoughtful, and inclusive society with the characteristics of being creative, imaginative, enterprising, and behaving based on high thinking and ideals, successfully managing contemporary challenges. In view of these aspects, this textbook has been developed based on the curriculum of class 11 social studies and life-sustaining education prepared in accordance with the National Curriculum Draft, 2076 BS.
