John Dewey's Conundrum: Can Democratic Schools Empower?
Shutz, Aaron
Teachers College Record, v103 n2 p267-302 Apr 2001
Examines John Dewey's vision of and concerns for democratic education, arguing that his approach failed to equip students to act effectively in the world as it was (and still is) and that his model of democracy, while extremely useful, is nonetheless inadequate to serve the varied needs of students living in a diverse and contentious society.
