Abstract

Democratic beliefs are among these images formed through social experiences yet schools are not democratic places. If democratic modeling is to be developed in schools then teachers and pre-service teachers must develop an awareness of what this means and methods to achieve a school for democratic modeling. It is well documented that many inequalities exist among American schools. Studies that investigate how teachers and administrators model and perceive democratic ideals should be used to inform the practice of stake holders in the educational arena. The data from this study could enhance development of courses to make teachers aware of their own perceptions and the influence it could have on students future understanding of democracy.
