Alternative Approaches to Political Education.
Cherryholmes, Cleo H.; Gillespie, Judith A.
This paper focuses on a comparative analysis of the normative and empirical elements of four approaches to political education. The analysis is conducted by identifying the central assumptions, value commitments and the empirical theoretical structure of each approach and by making comparisons across alternatives. The findings of the analysis generally demonstrate that each approach has dramatically different normative and empirical implications for political education. (Author)
