Kenneth Saltman clarifies it even better: "What is dangerously framed out within the neoliberal view is the role of DEMOCRATIC participation in societies ideally committed to DEMOCRACY and the role of public schools in preparing public democratic citizens with the tools for meaningful participatory self-governance.
