Leming, James S.
Theory and Research in Social Education, v20 n3 p293-312 Sum 1992
Examines the political beliefs of social studies education professors and social studies teachers. Reports that the political ideology of the professors was more liberal than that of the social studies teachers. Suggests that these differences in outlook have an effect on the way social studies is taught because of differing definitions of good citizenship. (DK)
