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.

Commonplace Entry #6

Original:

In order for everybody to feel comfortable and fit in, people need to be accommodated regarding how they feel comfortable. Bazelon depicts that accommodation is practical for everybody, and it is not fair that transgenders are not being accommodated just to accommodate females. Transgenders should feel comfortable and be treated like they belong wherever they feel identified, but, “it’s about relatively small adjustments for the sake of coexistence.” (Making Bathrooms More ‘Accommodating’). Although it is very hard for all people to come to an agreement since everybody has different opinions, many solutions can be enforced about the idea of “accommodation”, and not just the accommodation of transgenders, but of everybody, no matter their gender or their title.

New version:

In order for the everybody’s comfort, people need to be accommodated regarding their desires. Bazelon depicts that accommodation is practical for everybody, and it is unjust that transgenders are not being accommodated just to accommodate females. Transgenders should feel comfortable and be treated like they belong wherever they feel identified, but, “it’s about relatively small adjustments for the sake of coexistence.” (Making Bathrooms More ‘Accommodating’). Although it is hard for an agreement to settle between all people, many solutions can be enforced when it comes to accommodation, and not just the transgender’s accommodation, but everybody’s, no matter their gender or title.
