Description of this Book

Reimagining American Education to Serve All Our Children: Why Should we Educate in a Democracy? examines and re-evaluates the history and purpose of public education in the United States, in order to provide students of current and future generations with a robust and fulfilling learning experience. The authors approach knowledge from a critical perspective, with the intention of broadening the definition of knowledge and critical thinking, positioning education as a gateway to life's endless possibilities and participation in a democratic society. In asking why should we educate in a democracy rather than why do we educate in a democracy, the authors suggest directions that need to be taken to enhance democracy, social justice, and the positive effects of education for all. Divided into ten concise chapters, this volume provides activities and strategies for developing meaning for often contentious concepts, illustrates concepts, and brings together new ideas as well as assessment ideas. Greenblatt and Michelli and their co-authors cover a diverse range of important topics allowing us to understand education in a democracy, including: Socio-political barriers to knowledge The importance of all subjects, including the arts, health and physical education Methods of fostering imaginative thinking The political nature of the effects of policies on education Reimagining American Education to Serve All Our Children aims to provide practicing teachers, teacher educators, graduate education students- and all those interested in enhancing education, a discussion on the relationship between education and policy. A topical conversation, this book aids readers to develop a better understanding of the effects of social justice on American leaners and the effects of education on social justice and democracy in order to take a position on these critical issues.
