Issues in Education: A Closer Examination of American Education.
Aviel, David
Childhood Education, v73 n3 p130-32 Spr 1997

Rather than emphasizing rote memorization, American schools emphasize analysis and interpretation, and are much more egalitarian and pluralistic than these other systems. (EV)
