Editorial Reviews

Michigan Law Review

Forceful and provocative.... those who share Jefferson's concern that the mass of people should continue to control their own destinies would do well to accept Arons' challenge to examine critically how our schools can best serve the dual purpose of instilling shared community values and promoting the diversity of thought that vitalizes the process by which we determine what values we share.
