The Apprenticeship of Liberty: Schools for Democracy.
Barber, Benjamin R.
School Administrator, v55 n5 p10-12 May 1998
Explains why America has common schools and why they should be preserved. If our nation is to repossess its civic soul, it must recapture the central civic responsibilities of public schools. If American schools are to be defined by the search for literacy, then civic literacy must coexist alongside science, math, English, and cultural literacy. Public schools actually establish us as a public. (MLH)
