The author's liberal agenda for civic education offers a fundamental challenge to free market libertarians, the religious right, parental rights activists, postmodernists, and many of those who call themselves multiculturalists.


Stephen Macedo believes that, when it comes to education policy in the United States and other culturally diverse democracies, diversity should often, but not always, be highly valued. We must remember, he insists, that many forms of social and religious diversity are at odds with basic commitments to liberty, equality and civic flourishing.
