Values Added: Some Sociological Interpretations of Values Education.
Hartley, David
Scottish Educational Review, v29 n2 p163-73 Nov 1997
Examines current British concerns about the need for values education from the perspective of postmodern social theorists. Argues that, viewed sociologically, the current approach to values education is broadly functionalist (and conservative), for it fails to come to terms with the deep structure of contemporary society, specifically consumerism and profound social inequalities. Contains 49 references. (Author/SV)
