The National Commission on Social Studies in the Schools: An Example of the Politics of Curriculum Reform in the United States.
Mehlinger, Howard D.
Social Education, v56 n3 p149-53 Mar 1992
Discusses recommendations for the change of social studies curricula made by the National Commission on Social Studies in the Schools (NCSSS). Suggests that classroom impact of the report will depend on who likes, who opposes, and who is apathetic to the recommendations. Argues that tradition, state control of public education, and the textbook industry immobilize each other politically. (DK)
