Support Civic Education.
Penning, Nick
School Administrator, v44 n8 p21-22 Aug 1987
Although Congress now recognizes education as central to America's economic standing, education should also be supported to sustain democracy. Scholar R. Freeman Butts argues that civic learning is education's "prime purpose." Administrators should work to instill commitment to the common good so that America continues to select rational, humane leaders. (CJH)
