Educating the Democratic Mind

SUNY Press
Free sample

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.
