Description - Promises to Keep by Greg Dimitriadis

For all of its promise, education in America in the twentieth century never lived up to its democratic potential. Promises to Keep takes a serious look at the slow erosion of the fuller democratic meaning of a public education and a public life and explores the possibilities offered by emerging new progressivism. Inhabiting the intellectual and political space established by recent work in cultural studies, the essays collected here present the significant beginnings of a dialogue among various movements and discourses of democratic education and public life. Blending diverse approaches and distinguished scholars, this ambitious and timely volume struggles with the unfulfilled promises of history and offers hope for the future.
