Contends that the American education system needs to abandon the current trend toward holding, sorting, and indoctrinating students to be workers and consumers, an inherently antidemocratic education model. Suggests that education's highest priority should be education for active citizenry in a democratic society. Presents and analyzes John Dewey's ideas as a working model toward this end. (SD)
