Socrates, the Schools, and Civility: The Continuing War between Inculcation and Inquiry.
Pyle, Jeffrey J.
Journal of Law and Education, v26 n1 p65-89 Jan 1997
If Socrates returned, he would find inculcation a ubiquitous feature of U.S. education. Students and teachers who dissent from the community's wisdom are still denied their voice. The ideal of genuine Socratic inquiry remains an elite proposition. The First Amendment, which should protect students' right to question long held assumptions and convictions, is Socrates' gateway to schools. (63 references) (MLH)
