Strict Scrutiny: An Analysis of National Standards on Civic Education through the Perspectives of Contemporary Theorists.
Vontz, Thomas S.
Focusing on the most recent standards movement and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) framework for civics and government, this paper attempts to use the standards and framework to construct a synthesis model of civic education, to analyze the model through the perspectives of five civic education theorists, and to subject the model to a means-end test. The paper is divided into the following sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "National Standards for Civics and Government and the Civics Framework for the 1998 National Assessment of Educational Progress"; (3) "The Model as Analyzed through the Perspective of R. Freeman Butts"; (4) "The Model as Analyzed through the Perspective of Amy Gutmann"; (5) "The Model as Analyzed through the Perspective of Toni Marie Massaro"; (6) "The Model as Analyzed through the Perspective of David Steiner"; (7) "The Model as Analyzed through the Perspective of Thomas Pangle"; (8) "The Model as Analyzed through an Ends-Means Test"; and (9) "Conclusion."
