Democracy and National Education Standards

Nicholas Tampio, Fordham University

Wednesday, October 28 @ 6pm, Gheens Science Hall & Rauch Planetarium


Nicholas Tampio is Associate Professor of Political Science at Fordham University. He is the author of Deleuze’s Political Vision (Rowman & Littlefield, 2015) and Kantian Courage (Fordham University Press, 2012). Engaging the insights of Dewey and James Madison, who envisioned a free society with many conceptions of good schools, Tampio challenges the idea of national education standards from a democratic perspective. The talk sheds light on contemporary debates about the Common Core, the Next Generation Science Standards, and the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies.

Presented by the Commonwealth Center for the Humanities & Society in partnership with UofL’s College of Human Education and Human Development and the Gheens Science Hall & Rauch Planetarium
