Reclaiming Deep Democracy
James, Adrienne Brant
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v19 n3 p16-19 2010
The dawn of the 20th century sparked a world-wide movement to apply democracy in schools, courts, and families. Democracy is a cooperative culture which emerged from vast lands of North America at a time when the European continent was locked in hierarchical rule. Democracy was advocated by visionary youth work pioneers who discovered a better system than coercive discipline. Decades of research on group dynamics, resilience, and youth empowerment attest to the validity of these time-honored democratic traditions.
