Politikverdrossenheit and the Future of Education.
Van Patten, James J.; Bolding, James T.
In this review of literature, the researchers draw upon the history of politics and education as they overlap in society. Politikverdrossenheit is defined as disillusionment with politics in education and society, a concept researchers feel is unproductive. The development of the collective social and educational system is traced through the stages of: (1) Individuals as Political by Nature; (2) Politics of Social Justice; (3) Postmodernism: Celebration of Diversity; (4) Politics of Evaluation; (5) Politics of Reform Reports; and (6) Individuals as Political Animals. The political bent of individuals to enhance the quality of communications, self-esteem and self-worth of others, is advocated in order to build consensus and create an improved society. (EH)
