Research & Service

My research centers on the issue of education for democratic citizenship. I believe that democracy is not an automatically self-renewing process but it that is requires conscious collective attention and deliberate educational and cultural work. Hence all of my research projects, from my studies of multiculturalism, to my examination of the justification for affirmative action, to my exploration of religious education, to my evaluation of the idea of school choice, are intended to understand the relationship between education and democracy and to find ways to enhance what I believe to be our most valuable inheritance.
