Thomas-Reid, Matthew – Democracy & Education, 2018
First, I review the context for the need of new deliberative models, specifically agonistic deliberative models, for public discourse and for use in training students for public discourse. I then highlight five specific points that I trouble and enrich, principally through the work of Giroux, Arendt, Biesta, and Duarte. While I agree that there is…

Levine, Peter – Democracy & Education, 2018
The work of Crocco and her colleagues, "Deliberating Public Policy Issues with Adolescents," combines two important fields--deliberative democracy and discussion as a pedagogy--with a study of policy deliberations in three classrooms. Their article yields valuable insights. As the authors note, the results are disappointing. This may be…

Tampio, Nicholas – Democracy & Education, 2018
Parents, educators, and students have criticized the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects for expecting students to regurgitate evidence from assigned texts rather than think for themselves. This article argues that this popular critique is accurate and that…

Crocco, Margaret; Segall, Avner; Halvorsen, Anne-Lise; Jacobsen, Rebecca – Democracy & Education, 2018
Classroom discussion and deliberation have been widely touted in the research literature as a centerpiece of high quality civic education. Empirical studies, however, of such processes are relatively few. In a public policy deliberation on immigration conducted in three Midwestern high schools during the academic year 2015-16, the authors found…

Tryggvason, Ásgeir – Democracy & Education, 2018
Due to the current political challenges facing democratic societies, including an apparent presence of populist rhetoric, the question of how political discussions should take place in democratic education is as urgent as ever. In the last two decades, one of the most prominent approaches to this question has been the use of deliberative theory.…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Democracy & Education, 2018
This is a response to Ásgeir Tryggvason's argument that the deliberative critique of the agonistic approach to citizenship education is based on a misreading of the main concepts in agonistic theory--a misreading that has important implications for any attempt to bring closer agonism and deliberation in citizenship education. My aim in this…

Neem, Johann N. – Democracy & Education, 2018
The Common Core does not advance democratic education. Far from it, the opening section of the language standards argues that the goal of public K-12 education is "college and career readiness." Only at the end of their introductory section do the Common Core's authors suggest that K-12 education has any goals beyond the economic:…

Samuelsson, Martin – Democracy & Education, 2018
The aim of consensus is essential to deliberative democracy. However, this aim has also been frequently criticized. In this article, I present two different forms of criticism against consensus in democratic education. The first, articulated by scholars of education for democracy, claims that the aim of consensus fails to account for the…

Boaler, Jo; Anderson, Robin – Democracy & Education, 2018
In this response, we consider the Rights of Learners, in particular considering the ways "assessment for learners" policies and practices may be woven into the rights. We also consider findings from neuroscience on the positive role played by mistakes and suggest adding such findings to the messages given in classrooms. [For "The…

Hintz, Allison; Tyson, Kersti; English, Andrea R. – Democracy & Education, 2018
This response to Crystal Kalinec-Craig's article on the Rights of the Learner (RotL) aims to take up and build on the author's ideas about how the RotL framework can promote equitable mathematics teaching and learning.

de Groot, Isolde – Democracy & Education, 2018
Political simulations are considered promising tools to instigate democratic learning in schools.

Clark, Christopher H. – Democracy & Education, 2018
As civic educators become increasingly concerned about polarized political environments, researchers have begun explore the ramifications of contentious political discourse on young people. Through a quantitative analysis of data gathered from two rural, Midwestern schools, this study provides evidence that the degree to which a student socially…
