ReviewRealizing Educational Rights is an important book. It breaks new ground in the manner in which it weds theory and practice. Anne Newman reconciles ‘rights talk’ and participatory democracy by demonstrating through concrete examples of court cases and community activism how the language of ‘rights’ can help provide students specific skills in areas like voting and free expression—which they need if they are to function productively as civic participants. She lucidly puts into perspective the major writings on rights, deliberative democracy, judicial review, and social reform—advancing thinking in each of these areas—and also develops an important conceptual framework that bridges the world of academic scholarship, legal analysis, and community organizing.”
(Michael A. Rebell, author of Courts and Kids)

“Anne Newman’s study of the right to education in America combines trenchant philosophical analysis with exemplary political street smarts about the assets and liabilities of rights talk in both litigation and community organizing. This is a masterly interdisciplinary study that will be read and argued about for years to come.”
(Eamonn Callan, author of Creating Citizens)

Realizing Educational Rights combines astute philosophical and legal analysis with rich case study material to make a compelling case for education as both a fundamental human right and as a necessary condition for deliberative democracy. Anne Newman’s book shines a valuable light on the relations between moral engagement, legal argument, and community empowerment. It is an important contribution to both educational and political philosophy and should be read by anyone who has an interest in the role of education in advancing democracy.”
(Walter Feinberg, author of For Goodness Sake)
