Civic Education--What Roles for Citizens?
Tyack, David
Educational Leadership, v54 n5 p22-24 Feb 1997
The "disappearance" of civic America and atrophy of face-to-face associational life have become major social concerns. Meanwhile, governmental systems are decentralizing, and education remains very political. Striving to reinvigorate civic education for youth is not enough. Educators must further democratize education by involving citizens in meaningful deliberation (via public forums) about public schools' purposes and goals. (MLH)
