The Legacy of Public Work: Educating for Citizenship.
Boyte, Harry C.; Skelton, Nan
Educational Leadership, v54 n5 p12-17 Feb 1997
The nation's educational system mirrors the dynamics of our marketplace democracy, recasting parents as self-interested consumers. Jane Addams' philosophy of education (enhancing people's productive capacities to benefit the commonweal) has been revived in Public Achievement, a work-centered, civic-earning program in St.Paul, Minnesota, that helps youngsters value teamwork, handle diversity, and develop confidence.
