Why Community Matters
By Nicholas V. Longo

Providing a new perspective on the undeniable relationship between education reform and democratic revitalization, Nicholas V. Longo uncovers and examines practical models in which communities play an essential role in teaching the art of democracy.

“There is perhaps no more central question for the future of American society than how to educate for democracy. Longo’s impressive and hopeful Why Community Matters persuasively makes the case that schools and communities must connect if schools are to succeed and America is to fulfill its democratic promise. Longo convincingly calls on schools, communities, and universities to act and give full attention to the democratic work of building democracy.” — Ira Harkavy, Associate Vice President and Director, Center for Community Partnerships, University of Pennsylvania
