There is no more important task than the development of an informed, effective, and responsible citizenry. Democracies are sustained by citizens who have the requisite knowledge, skills, and dispositions. Absent a reasoned commitment on the part of its citizens to the fundamental values and principles of democracy, a free and open society cannot succeed.

Civic Education in a democracy is aiming at the development of a citizen or it is education in self-government that citizens are actively involved in their own governance; they do not just passively accept the dictums of others or acquiesce to the demands of others.

The team works to fulfill three essential components of the civic education: civic knowledge, civic skills, and civic dispositions

Civic Education team, as one of the functions of TIBIBIR educates Ethiopians and make effort on the part of its citizens in building a society and government in which:

  • Human rights are respected
  • The individual’s dignity and worth are acknowledged
  • The rule of law is respected
  • People willingly fulfill their responsibilities, and
  • The common good is the concern of all

The Civic Education function helps develop citizens' knowledge and skills and shape their civic character and commitments through the following methods:

  • Formal Instruction - Formal instruction in civics and government should provide a basic and realistic understanding of civic life, politics, and government.
  • Informal curriculum - The informal curriculum encompasses the governance of the school community and the relationships among those within it, as well as the "extra" or co-curricular activities that a school provides
