Summary "This collection of essays describes recent experiments at Goddard College (Vermont), which for 60 years has been developing programs based on the ideals of democracy and the principles of progressive education. Higher Education for Democracy draws on that rich history as well as on the legacy of the progressive movement in the 1930s and 1940s (which held education for democracy as one of its central tenets), while exploring the principles and practices needed to confront the new challenges to democracy that society is now facing."--BOOK JACKET
