Democracy Alert believes that educational philosophy and intent have been captured by neoliberal values. Our students are increasingly being trained as workers in the global economy rather than as participating citizens in society. We have focused on two areas where we feel change is necessary. One is the high school curriculum, and in particular the social studies curriculum. The other is what goes on outside the high school classroom, what we call school culture.
