Book Talk: Flunking Democracy

Schools, Courts & Civic Participation

Michael Rebell, Professor of Law and Educational Practice Education Policy

In Flunking Democracy, Michael A. Rebell makes the case that the decline of civic participation is not a recent problem, but rather that for generations now, America‚Äôs schools have systematically failed to prepare students to be capable citizens. Rebell analyzes the causes of this failure, provides a detailed analysis of what we know about how to prepare students for productive citizenship, and considers examples of best practices.
