Civic education classes generally have a positive impact on political knowledge and citizen involvement. In Quebec, the mandatory History and citizenship education class, almost unstudied thus far, was recently replaced by a History of Quebec and Canada class in secondary 3 and 4. 14 interviewed History and citizenship education teachers in secondary 4 believe that these courses improve some indicators of students’ politicization but not necessarily future turnout, and that civic education takes too little space in the curriculum. An open classroom climate, which literature has found to have a positive impact on voting, seems to be absent from their teaching.
