Summary
"This volume is a collection of essays by leading scholars and educators that address the major challenges facing public education and suggest changes to keep the institution vital to the maintenance of an informed citizenry. Each chapter explores the ways in which the public schools are linked to the preparation of citizens, debates the concerns and disagreements, and proposes the possibilities for improvement. These proposals include recommendations that more schools make institutional commitments to civic participation in order to produce more civic-minded individuals. Further, international public school systems are analyzed, and some of their methods are considered for adoption into the American model."--Jacket
