The Astonishing Gall of Mr. Stein.
Mahood, Wayne
Social Studies Journal, v17 p5-8 Spr 1988
Criticizes Benjamin Stein's 1983 article on the historical and geographical ignorance of U.S. teenagers. States that Stein's conception of "social studies as socialization" is flawed. Opposing the simple memorization of facts and dates, Mahood argues for education which teaches students to become questioners who are able to critically examine the events that directly affect their lives.
