Nigel Grant and Plato: A Question of Democratic Education.
Comparative Education, v36 n2 p135-41 May 2000
Outlines several ways of looking comparatively at democratic educational systems. Examines narratives of democratic education in American educational history; nation-building as a primary policy objective; and conceptual weaknesses of the model of elite, mass, and universal education. Sees current trends toward educational efficiency and quality control as a major threat to any remnants of a "democratic education system." (SV)
