Having been involved in civic education for quite some time, my perception is that we should do much better in preparing our students to sustain their present and future roles as enlightened and autonomous citizens, able and willing to carry on with the project of a humane and democratic society. I do not suggest that we should reinvent the wheel and develop completely new strategies - appropriate concepts of effective civic learning have been available since John Dewey began writing about democracy, experience, and education.
