Latimore, Sonja, Ed.
ESR Journal, 1992
The ESR Journal presents educational frameworks that promote divergent viewpoints, stimulate critical thinking about controversial issues, teach creative and productive ways of dealing with differences, promote cooperative problem solving, and foster informed decision making. The theme of this particular issue is: "Educating for Democracy." The 8 articles in this volume are grouped under three topics: (1) democracy and school reform; (2) democracy in a changing society; and (3) democracy at work in the classroom. The first section includes 3 articles: (1) "Education for Democracy: Public Life, Public Values, and Power" (Frances Moore Lappe; Paul Martin Du Bois); (2) "Democratic Schools at Risks" (George Wood); and (3) "The Hanover High School Council" (Marilyn Blight). The second section contains two articles: (1) "Whose Curriculum?: Cultural Diversity and Our Schools" (Laurie Olsen); and (2) "Social Justice in a Quaker School: A Process of Multicultural Change" (Carolyn R. O'Grady). The third section contains: (1) "Educating for Democracy and Community: Toward the Transformation of Power in Our Schools" (Seth Kreisberg); (2) "Democracy in the Elementary Classroom: A Curriculum for Interdependence" (Alan Medville); and (3) "Empowering the Educated: Strategies for Efficacy" (April Laskey Aerni; Deborah R.
