    One thought on “Education for Everyone: Agenda for Education in a Democracy”

    1. I don't think I've ever read a book that had me so completely riveted, absolutely focused on what was being said at one moment and so unequivocally bored and uninterested in the next. I'm sure this partially has something to do with me and my lack of ability to focus on research heavy, non-fiction style writing, but I still hold the authors accountable for some of the boredom. That being said, I agreed with much of the book and completely and totally agree with two summations: 1. When done right [...]

    2. A little too idealistic for me. I thought the author had interesting points to consider, but it seemed to lack a firm basis in reality to justify the claims he was making about what was necessary in teaching.

    3. Required reading for Democracy in Education course - some chapters were helpful but others almost seemed pretentious.
