Description: The parallel analyses of the historical evolution of community colleges and John Dewey’s work on democracy and education are each rich in their own right, but taken together they provide a critical overview of potential and promise. The author makes a compelling call for community college leaders to purposely advance the use of democratic communities to transform community colleges and create a better democracy. - Carlos Nevarez, Professor and Director of Doctorate in Educational Leadership, California State University, Sacramento, USA In John Dewey and the Future of Community College Education, Harbour takes his readers on a provocative journey of the community colleges' landscape, analyzing their humble beginning, their evolving and transformative mission, and their purpose. Harbour explains the development of the community college and its institutional predecessor, the junior college, to show how these democratic institutions acquired their traditional vision of expanding educational opportunity and access. This is a fantastic read for both practitioners and non-practitioners, which will shed some light on the current state of community colleges in the USA and the competing interests and priorities that these institutions must grapple with. - Rassoul Dastmozd, President, Saint Paul College, USA In an era of growing and dangerous inequalities, Cliff Harbour reaches back to John Dewey for the ideas, will and courage to recommit to a new version for what “America’s College” should be. Harbour also reminds us of the value of knowing the past and calling forth those ideas that were - and still are - compelling of the betterment of us all. He connects current issues to our collective past and to our values, and identifies what could be lost if we don’t change course. This book is well-researched and referenced it will prove accessible to a wide range of readers. - William M. Timpson, Professor of Teaching and Learning, Colorado State University, USA Harbour provides an alluring overview of the historical evolution of the community college and of the life and times of Dewey. Grounded in this context, he uses battle-tested Deweyan philosophy to articulate a bold, new, and innovative vision for community colleges that prioritizes individual growth and the development of democratic communities. The volume is a must-read for community college practitioners and scholars who seek to improve the institutions capacity to facilitate the upward social and economic mobility of individuals and communities. The volume is written in an accessible tone, which allows readers to envelop themselves in a history and story that compels them to reconsider the future. - J. Luke Wood, Doctorate in Education Director and Associate Professor of Community College Leadership, San Diego State University, USA
