Standard 12: Professional Citizenship

April 20, 2011

The idea of professional citizenship infers that I explore the world of education beyond the classroom, engaging in and listening to dialogue, and taking a position on matters that relate to the ideas and practices that I see within the school and classroom. The following document, written during the course “American Education: Past and Present”, introduces and explores a concept that I like to call “the democracy argument”. In short, it is the epitome of the arguments that occur in the American education system, just as it is the reason that the arguments over education will never be satisfied; it is the fact that we exist in a largely undefined system of education designed “of the people, by the people, for the people”.
