Educating for a Civil Society: The Core Issue Is Inequality.
Karp, Stan
Educational Leadership, v54 n5 p40-43 Feb 1997
A Paterson (New Jersey) teacher criticizes well-meaning prescriptions for educating students for a civil society. Reforms based on skills-based instruction and test-driven assessment are failing. Inequality is the core issue. Schools cannot compensate for class and racial inequalities, particularly if inequitable funding mechanisms persist. Unfortunately, Jeremy Rifkin's civil sector is an implausible alternative. (MLH)
