About the Author

Joel Westheimer is professor and university research chair in sociology of education at the University of Ottawa and education columnist for CBC Radio. He is the editor of Pledging Allegiance: The Politics of Patriotism in America's Schools.


A compelling read, this book will have anyone with a vested interest in the future citizens of our world pausing to question the education system as we know it and forming their own opinions on what matters most for these children. A good read for teachers in need of some inspiration or for anyone looking for more insight into education in America. --Green Teacher Magazine

Joel Westheimer's compelling book What Kind of Citizen? Educating Our Children for the Common Good is a play in two acts with several scenes in each act...The play begins in tragedy but ends in comedy - that is, comedy in the Shakespearean sense of focusing on a happy outcome for the characters. Like Shakespeare, Westheimer has written a play for the masses: well written, fast paced and full of easy to follow anecdotes and examples drawn from his long experience as an educator and researcher.--Citizenship, Teaching & Learning

The message of this short and accessible book is that it is vital for schools to resist the pressures of standardization and offer educational spaces where young people can learn about what it means to be a citizen in a democratic society. --Philosophical Inquiry in Education
