Abstract: The current socio-cultural political climate in the United States, the renewing of the Patriot Act, disaster relief or the lack thereof, the ongoing threat of terrorism and the corroding of essential civil liberties, the rise in materialism and environmental destruction, the demonization of those in poverty, and the privatization of a free public education force us to ask the following question: What is the promise and purpose of a democratic education?
