    Habits of Democracy: A Deweyan Approach to Citizenship Education in America Today.Sarah M. Stitzlein - 2014 - Education and Culture 30 (2):61-86.
    Throughout his works, John Dewey makes deep and intriguing connections between democracy, education, and daily life. His ideas have contributed to both the theory and practice of participatory democracy and, although he actually “had surprisingly little to say about democratic citizenship” directly, his scholarship has influenced the ideas of others working on citizenship education and has provided rich notions of democracy, education, experience, and public life underlying it.1 However, Dewey commentators Michael Eldridge and Robert Westbrook worry that, although Dewey promoted (...)

    Hoping and Democracy.Sarah M. Stitzlein - 2018 - Contemporary Pragmatism 15 (2):228-250.
    Too often, hope is described in individualist terms and in ways that do not help us understand contemporary democracy or offer ways to improve it. Instead, I develop an account of hope situated within pragmatist philosophy that is rooted in the experiences of individuals and grows out of real life circumstances, yet cannot be disconnected from social and political life. This account can help us to better face current political struggles related to hopelessness and despair, all the while building democratic (...)

    Private Interests, Public Necessity: Responding to Sexism in Christian Schools.Sarah M. Stitzlein - 2008 - Educational Studies: A Jrnl of the American Educ. Studies Assoc 43 (1):45-57.
    This synthetic review aims to unite a seemingly disjoint collection of studies over the past 3 decades around their shared examination of sexism in an often overlooked U.S. population, namely girls attending private Christian schools. This undertaking reveals substantial harms that I categorize as those of immediacy and potentiality, which are occurring behind the protective wall separating church and state. Contra the majority of philosophers of education and researchers in this area, these studies lead me to argue that the state (...)

    The Role of “Small Publics” in Teacher Dissent.Sarah M. Stitzlein & Amy Rector-Aranda - 2016 - Educational Theory 66 (1-2):165-180.
    In this essay, Sarah Stitzlein and Amy Rector-Aranda, drawing on John Dewey's theoretical suggestions regarding how to best form publics capable of bringing about change through deliberation and action, offer teachers guidance on how to form and navigate spaces of political protest and become more effective advocates for school reform. Using Aaron Schutz's analysis of teacher activism as a point of departure, Stitzlein and Rector-Aranda argue for the development in schools of “small publics,” that is, Deweyan democratic spaces within which (...)

    The Right to Dissent and its Implications for Schooling.Sarah M. Stitzlein - 2012 - Educational Theory 62 (1):41-58.
    In this article Sarah Stitzlein highlights an educational right that has been largely unacknowledged in the past but has recently gained significance given renewed citizen participation in displays of public outcry on our streets and in our town halls. Dissent is typically conceived of as a negative right—a liberty that guarantees that the government will not interfere with one's public self-expression. Stitzlein argues that, insofar as the legitimacy of the state depends on obtaining the consent of the governed, the state (...)

    Illinois Project for Democratic Accountability.Sarah M. Stitzlein, Walter Feinberg, Jennifer Greene & Luis Miron - 2007 - Educational Studies 42 (2):139-155.
    Education is experiencing a case of misplaced accountability, where an exclusive reliance on high stakes tests overlooks the more subtle judgments of teachers and professional educators and, because of its simplicity, passes as democratic. This article investigates the theoretical underpinnings of current accountability initiatives and draws upon extensive teacher interviews to reveal the practical aspects of accountability pressures in schools today. We provide a discussion of local teacher knowledge that exposes teachers' commitments to a deeper sense of successful education that (...)

    Addressing Educational Accountability and Political Legitimacy with Citizen Responsibility.Sarah M. Stitzlein - 2015 - Educational Theory 65 (5):563-580.
    In this essay, Sarah Stitzlein addresses a key current crisis in public education: accountability. Rather than centrally being about poor performance of teachers or inefficiency of schools, as we most often hear in media outlets and in education reform speeches, Stitzlein argues the crisis is at heart one about citizen responsibility and political legitimacy. She claims that the recent accountability movement has shifted the onus of curing society's problems almost exclusively onto schools, but contends that these burdens should not just (...)
