Vinson, Kevin D.
Social Education, v62 n2 p112-115 Feb 1998
Addresses the shortcomings of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) position statement "Fostering Civic Virtue: Character Education in the Social Studies." Challenges the work of the NCSS Task Force on Character Education in the Social Studies on four concerns: (1) necessity and timeliness; (2) generality and specificity; (3) utility; and (4) comprehensiveness.
