Two Concepts of Education.
O'Connor, D. J.
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v16 n2 p137-46 1982
Distinguishes between two functions of education: secondary socialization which connotes basic knowledge necessary to run a society and humanities education which involves appreciation of art, literature, music. Suggests that humanities education is ineffective for the majority of students and should be replaced with a study of natural science and mathematics. (KC)
