Fred Clarke's Ideals of Liberal Democracy: State and Community in Education
Ku, Hsiao-Yuh
British Journal of Educational Studies, v61 n4 p401-415 2013
This paper examines the continuity and changes in Clarke's ideas about the State and community in education, especially in relation to a rapidly changing political situation in England in the 1930s and 1940s. His ideas evolved in the intellectual context of British idealism. Moreover, in response to the threat to democracy arising from Fascism or Totalitarianism, the distinction between the State and community was a key theme in Clarke's ideals of liberal democracy. Additionally, this paper also proposes the implications of Clarke's ideas for future educational development.
