At a time when popular media are promoting a view of schooling as 'drilling and skilling', this book argues the role schools should play in producing a literate, imaginative, and critically engaged citizenry. Writing out of diverse locations and settings, the authors emphasise the importance of schooling as a common enterprise where teachers and students, schools and communities can participate in a socially productive dialogue.
