The Ethics of a Democratically-Based Classroom.
Harrison, Gale A.
Thresholds in Education, v19 n1-2 p19-26 1993
The elite model of education postulates that only a select few have the intellectual capacity, moral values, and personal commitment to make "good" decisions for society. A democratically based classroom, where students are respected for their intellectual abilities, personal integrity, and commitment to achievement, fosters successful learning. Tips for encouraging student independence and self-control are provided. (MLH)
