Education, Public Confidence and the Legitimacy of the Modern State: Is There a "Crisis" Somewhere?
Weiler, Hans N.
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v15 n2 p125-42 Apr-Jun 1983
There is a substantial decline of confidence in public education in the United States. This decline mirrors and reflects an erosion of confidence in public authority and institutions in general. Dissatisfaction with public education may well contribute to and, thereby, engender further cynicism towards the state. (RM)
