Commonplace book: Fleming’s words entry

Discussing Fleming’s quote:

“[A]n education [. . .] that was designed to support a truly direct, deliberative democracy [. . .] would be an education oriented to the ‘strong publics’ of decision-making rather than the ‘weak publics’ of opinion formation. (205)”

– In this quote, Fleming discusses and expresses his opinion in how democracy is visioned and present in education. He states how democracy has allowed people to think and express themselves freely. People participate in government ideas, since their opinions matter, just as everyone else’s. The people in a democratic area are seen as a community instead of a plain society. People can participate, no matter their diversity, everyone is accepted and heard. All is done, for a better purpose for all.
