Nurturing a Democratic Community in the Classroom
Thayer-Bacon, Barbara J.
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v30 n5 p491-497 Sep 2011
Thayer-Bacon tells her story in a conversational tone that traces her personal and professional roots as she describes various chapters of her life: first as a philosopher, how she became involved in education, and then how that involvement became a career as a philosopher of education, in a large teacher education program, and now at a research institution. She sketches her philosophical contributions, as a pragmatist, feminist, postmodernist, and cultural studies scholar, to philosophy, philosophy of education, and education.
