Democracy & Education Debuts
March 11, 2006
Lewis & Clark’s Graduate School of Education and Counseling has added a quarterly journal to its offerings: Democracy & Education. Formerly published by Ohio University, the journal is now edited by Nancy Nagel, associate dean and professor of education, and Peter Cookson, dean and professor of educational administration.
Democracy & Education is designed to enhance and reflect on the teaching and learning of democracy. It also functions as a community colloquium, bringing to light the successes and struggles of educators as they merge democratic teachings and principles with real-world practices. Lewis & Clark’s first issue focuses on successful place-based education environments. The second issue, which will be devoted to new teachers, will be published later this spring.
Consulting editors include Howard Gardner, Ann Lieberman, Jim Beane, David Berliner, and others from the international education community.
