Encouraging Individual Responsibility: Why Individuals Feel Powerless and the Possible Implications for Education.
Knoop, Robert
Education Canada, v35 n1 p40-42 Spr 1995
Examines three major reasons why individuals shirk responsibility: feelings of powerlessness (external locus of control), belief in a systems world (society as self-regulating balance of objective forces), and consequences of extreme introversion or extraversion. Discusses the role of education in fostering development of student attitudes and qualities supportive of personal responsibility. (SV)
