1. It is the day of the presidential elections. Your parents refuse to vote on the grounds that politicians are corrupt. Worst it prevents his family to vote. How do you find this attitude? From your knowledge of the rights and duties of citizens, you develop arguments to bring it to reconsider its position and that of his family.

2. Citizenship is based on three principles:

social and moral responsibility: learning from a very young age to drive with confidence, in a responsible manner, morally and socially, in the classroom and outside the classroom, both towards those in charge of the authority and other. People have rights and duties;

Involvement in the life of the city: Learn how to get involved in the lives and concerns of the communities, including learning in engaging local actions in the service of the people. This may not be the only responsibility of the school, but must also be the result of home education;

Education policy: learning what public life is and how to participate, how to influence, through knowledge, expertise and values. Public life at local, national and international level.
