Democracy in a Multicultural School and Community


by Paul E. Heckman, Christine B. Confer & Jean Peacock 1995

The purpose of the ECC project is to demonstrate the applicability and effectiveness of three propositions: (1) democratic norms will best promote reinvention in schools and communities; (2) when adults and children change conditions in their own schools and communities, they further their educational development, and (3) educational advancement is achieved and interconnections between school and community are best developed when all local learning resources work collectively as the axis for change. Within the ECC Project, the conglomerate of a community's educational, economic, societal, and all other resources is known as the "educational ecology."
