    On the Public and Civic Purposes of Education.Kathleen Knight Abowitz - 2008 - Educational Theory 58 (3):357-376.
    In this review essay, Kathleen Knight Abowitz discusses three recent books related to democratic public life and schooling: Susan H. Fuhrman and Marvin Lazerson’s The Public Schools, Walter C. Parker’s Teaching Democracy: Unity and Diversity in Public Life, and Kevin McDonough and Walter Feinberg’s Education and Citizenship in Liberal‐Democratic Societies.

    Achieving Public Schools.Kathleen Knight Abowitz - 2011 - Educational Theory 61 (4):467-489.
    Public schools are functionally provided through structural arrangements such as government funding, but public schools are achieved in substance, in part, through local governance. In this essay, Kathleen Knight Abowitz explains the bifocal nature of achieving public schools; that is, that schools are both subject to the unitary Public compact of constitutional principles as well as to the more local engagements with multiple publics. Knight Abowitz sketches this bifocal nature, exploring both the unitary ideal and its parameters, as well as (...)

    Imagining Democratic Futures for Public Universities: Educational Leadership Against Fatalism's Temptations.Kathleen Knight Abowitz - 2016 - Educational Theory 66 (1-2):181-197.
    At current rates, almost all U.S. public universities could reach a point of zero state subsidy within the next fifty years. What is a public university without public funding? In this essay, Kathleen Knight Abowitz considers the future of public universities, drawing upon the analysis provided in John Dewey's Democracy and Education. Knight Abowitz conducts an initial institutional analysis through two broad prisms: that of the political landscape that authorizes universities as public institutions, and that of the present political–economic context (...)

    Introduction: Maxine Greene on Democracy and the Social Imagination.Kathleen Knight Abowitz - 2016 - Education and Culture 32 (1):1.
    In assembling scholars for the John Dewey Symposium for the 2015 Annual Meeting in Chicago, I sought thinkers who would critically engage Maxine Greene’s philosophy of democratic education. The recent death of Greene, long-time member of the Society, friend and teacher of many members, and John Dewey Lecturer in 1988, had left a powerful absence among educational philosophers, and many had honored her legacy with loving tributes. The Symposium’s aim was to bring together scholars in critical engagement with her work.Greene (...)

    Qualifying My Faith in the Common School Ideal: A Normative Framework for Democratic Justice.Kathleen Knight Abowitz - 2010 - Educational Theory 60 (6):683-702.
    In this essay, Kathleen Knight Abowitz makes the case that charter schooling can enable multiple publics to develop and create educational visions. Charter schooling policies can enable these publics to pursue these visions and agendas on behalf of both public and common educational goals as well as goals associated with particular identities and interests. This vision of a plural public sphere, with its movement away from purely state‐run traditional public schools, challenges the common school ideal that has been part of (...)

    Virtual Charter Schools and the Democratic Aims of Education.Dustin Hornbeck, Kathleen Knight Abowitz & Andrew Saultz - 2019 - Education and Culture 35 (2):3.
    “When citizens can associate only in certain cases, they regard association as a rare and singular process, and they hardly think of it. When you allow them to associate freely in everything, they end up seeing in association the universal and, so to speak, unique means that men can use to attain the various ends that they propose. Each new need immediately awakens the idea of association. The art of association then becomes, as I said above, the mother science; everyone (...)
