Democracy is more than a creed or a doctrine. It must be a continuing force in the daily thinking, working, and living of all our citizens. American schools and colleges can strengthen democracy by practicing it--by showing concretely the basic advantages it offers to human beings. It is in the homes and in the schools, in home towns and local organizations, that Americans learn the values and working habits of democracy. This bulletin is a collection of practical ways in which wide-awake schools and alert communities are helping to make democracy effective. It provides practical suggestions on this topic for administrators, faculty committees, teachers, community leaders, and organizations; and discusses the ways that newspapers, radio, and movies can be utilized in this effort. It is offered to other schools and other groups of citizens to assist them in their efforts to share with children, youth, and adults diverse and creative democratic experiences.
