Prasad, Priya V.; Kalinec-Craig, Crystal – Democracy & Education, 2021

McCormick, Melanie M.; Halvorsen, Anne-Lise – Democracy & Education, 2021

Tell, Shawgi – Democracy & Education, 2021
Frenkiewich and Onosko (2020) maintain that American public education has functioned as a pillar of democracy and a force for progress for most of the twentieth century, but they worry that a major turn to school privatization in recent years will undermine the democratic mission and vision of public schooling and harm society as well. The authors…
