Can democratic states and their democratic values secure a fair and good education for all?

April 2011

Modern societies have become references in term of quality of life, economical power and also educational settings. In this paper, one will be able to find out if modern states and the democratic values that they are carrying, are actually really able to secure a good and fair education for their citizens. Democratic values in education are not as present as one can think. This paper will try to review different perspectives that exist in education such as the connections among educational enterprise and political context, the type of knowledge learnt at school, and the primary objectives of educations in democratic states. Some ideas in order to encourage the implementation of democratic values in education would be suggested.
