Reappraising the Theoretical Goals of Research in Social Education.
Shaver, James P.
Theory and Research in Social Education, v9 n4 p1-16 Win 1982
Examines why social science/social studies educational research does not generate theories. The author concludes that the subject matter of this kind of research--human beings in their sociocultural milieu--makes it difficult to make objective observations from which theoretical principles can be derived.
