Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Addresses the question: How can schools help shape young minds to address the challenges of a democratic society?

There can be no democracy without democrats, and democrats are made, not born. This volume features sixteen provocative essays, old and new, on the concern to educate young people for that loosely-defined genre of political and social life called democracy. It is an historical collection on the central question of our era: How and what might children be taught so that they respond well and creatively to the demands of an increasingly diverse society that is organized under and struggling, on and off, to realize the democratic ideal? How are we to educate children to embrace difference and maintain a common life? Contributors include Walter C. Parker, Ann V. Angell, James A. Banks, Jane Bernard-Powers, Carole L. Hahn, David Mathews, William B. Stanley, and James Anthony Whitson.

"This thoughtful and creative collection of articles will enable its readers to ponder seriously the democratic work that schools need to undertake, the reasons why such work is essential for the survival of our nation, and to become acquainted with creative ways to make our schools democratic, just and moral communities. I hope readers will join me in applauding Walter Parker for this important and welcome project." -- from the Foreword by James A. Banks

Walter C. Parker is Associate Professor of Education at the University of Washington.
