This chapter analyses a series of issues around the nature and place of history and citizenship within formal co-operative education in the early twentieth century. It begins with a consideration of an educational campaign at the end of the nineteenth century, which put the teaching of the history and principles of co-operation at the core of the movement’s educational endeavour. Next, the chapter examines the kind of history being expounded in the movement, and compares co-operative history instruction with the curricula taught in schools. The chapter carries the story into the interwar years, by which time the movement’s educational programme had expanded considerably. It argues that, at least until the 1930s, the educational programme represented a national initiative to ensure co-operation had a place in the educational and cultural mainstream.
