Sehr (English, Clifton High School) argues that contemporary education's goal of preparing students for future job opportunities precludes its commitment to help students become active participants in a civic life. The author examines the idea of public democratic citizenship, contrasting the views of Locke and the Federalists with Rousseau and Jefferson, and further discusses the implementation of curriculum and pedagogy in two high schools that promote the concept of public democratic citizenship.
