Civics Is Not Enough: Teaching Barbarics in K-12.
Hibbing, John R.; Theiss-Morse, Elizabeth
PS: Political Science and Politics, v29 n1 p57-62 Mar 1996
Criticizes K-12 civics and government education for focusing on the various components of government and creating a sanitized vision of how democracy works. Argues that conflict and compromise are parts of the democratic process rather than aberrations. Recommends a shift in focus on both the secondary and postsecondary levels. (MJP)
