Civic Learning: "Democracy and Education" Revisited.
Ehrlich, Thomas
Educational Record, v78 n3-4 p56-65 Sum-Fall 1997
John Dewey's "Democracy and Education" suggests an approach to civic education using techniques commonly adopted in today's undergraduate education, including community service, problem solving, and collaborative learning. Community service is an important way to foster civic engagement in young Americans. If American higher education is to help realize Dewey's vision of democracy, new forms of learning and defining knowledge are needed. (MSE)
