Community Educators: A Resource for Educating and Developing Our Youth

This 206-page book by Patricia Moore Harbour asserts that the relationships between education, community, and democracy are inseparable and illustrates that education is broader than just schooling. “Harbour challenges current thinking about education and reveals how the public participates in the education and development of youth.”  Continued from the book’s description…

“This book is a call for action and responsibility—both individual and collective—to transform education beyond simply reforming schools. The author’s professional educational experiences, combined with stories from the field by and about youth and community educators, exemplify the importance of citizen collaboration among the various sectors of the community, including youth, parents, schools, businesses, and neighborhood residents.”
