Fulfilling Citizen Responsibilities

Fulfilling Citizen Responsibilities

(p.111) 6 Fulfilling Citizen Responsibilities
American Public Education and the Responsibility of its Citizens

Sarah M. Stitzlein

Oxford University Press

In chapter six, I articulate some of the specific ways people can fulfill their responsibilities as citizens, teachers, school leaders, educational reformers, policymakers, and students. I provide examples of people and groups who are fulfilling their responsibilities well and suggest pathways for others to join them. I aim to restore some trust and positive feelings toward public life and public institutions and to help citizens see how participating in and supporting public institutions central to democracy improve our collective and individual lives. I hope to show citizens how they might fulfill their responsibilities as citizens as well as ignite other ideas to respond to ongoing changes in schools.
