To Practice What One Preaches: Deepening Civic Education
Bain-Selbo, Eric; Markham, Paul
Journal of College and Character, v13 n4 Nov 2012
American democracy is in disarray. While many colleges and universities have responded to the democracy crisis, their efforts are falling short. This article reviews the current situation of civic education in higher education, explores its promise and current shortcomings, and provides a radical proposal for deepening civic education and reinvigorating our democracy.
