Democratic Education in Practice by Matthew Knoester provides a powerful antidote to the despair progressive teachers too easily can feel in the face of the corporate-sponsored onslaught against 21st-century public schools. The book provides a fine-grained view of the Mission Hill School in Boston, started in 1997 by two of the nation’s most committed and creative progressive educators.
