Scott Nine shares some of the vision here:
What is Democratic Education?
And why it’s the narrative and network we’re building
Democratic education is not a type of school or research-based practice. It isn’t one kind of learning program or philosophy. It is a frame. It’s a way of gathering together a vast and powerful set of ideas, philosophies of learning, research, school models, teaching practices, policies, and community visions so that a powerful story can be told that reclaims the “public” in public education — that is, education owned by all of us.
