Education in a Rapidly Changing Democracy: Strengthening Civic Education for Citizens of all Ages
Leighninger, Matt; Levine, Peter
School Administrator, v65 n9 p25-28 Oct 2008
The shifting relationship between citizens and government has special implications for public schools. How schools approach civic education isn't just a matter of course content--it is wrapped up in how teachers and administrators view their role in the larger community. This article describes ways in which both civic education for young people and involvement opportunities for all citizens can be strengthened. By strengthening the connection between students as citizens and adults as citizens, educators might transform the role of schools in local democracy.
