Weekend Links : Democracy in Schools

"I think that the best way to prepare students to participate in democratic society is to have them grow up in democratic schools." - Jerry Mintz

In the video above (which I have shared before and is worth watching every minute of!), there is an example of a council meeting.  This piece by Chris Mercogliano called School as Community, Community as School, looks at the council meeting as the pinnacle of the democratic experience in a more in depth way.

Are you interested in democratic education on any level?  How do you promote democracy in the classroom?  In the school?  Beyond?

Happy Weekend!
