Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of . . .
Eberly, Rosa A.; Serber, Brad
Journal of General Education, v62 n4 p277-296 2013
With the hope of inspiring readers to reimagine the centrality of general education in constituting young adult capacities to create and sustain collective self-governance, this essay describes two courses and one activity built around public problems. General education viewed as a human right as well as a shared responsibility can thus serve as a college-level introduction to the habits and pleasures of lifelong collaborative learning, illustrating education's centrality in constituting the future of participatory democracy.
