The Conception of Problem and the Role of Inquiry in Social Education.
Maxcy, Spencer J.
Theory and Research in Social Education, v14 n4 p295-306 Fall 1986
Delineates three prevailing positions in social education theory: (1) traditional (positivist), (2) liberal/neoliberal, and (3) radical. Argues that the analysis of these positions provides a more powerful understanding of such issues as indoctrination and student selection of social problems to be studied. (JDH)
