Citizenship education in secondary school is recent and connected with societal issues. The paper examines changes observed in an upper secondary schools and how citizenship education is conceived in the curriculum? To asks under which forms, in which proportions and to which outcomes? Can we speak of active citizenship and longlife citizenship? To answer these questions, analysis of the work of practitioners’ in three French high schools forms the basis of understanding ways of educating or training tomorrow’s citizens. From this approach we shall seek to perceive the implementation of education for citizenship which has some difficulty to impose itself at this level of the students’ curriculum.
