Children and the Politics of Trust
Riccards, Michael P.
Child Study Journal, 1, 4, 227-232, Sum 71
Examines the hazards of teaching school children to have unquestioning trust in the government and its leaders. Suggests that students should be taught the actual rather than an idealized mechanism version of the American politics, and also the importance of the democratic citizen as both supporter and critic of the system.
