Democracy's High School? Social Change and American Secondary Education in the Post-Conant Era.
Rury, John L.
American Educational Research Journal, v39 n2 p307-36 Sum 2002
Discusses James Conant's ideas about the democratic role of the comprehensive high school and addresses just how those ideas have been treated by history. Major historical events have converged in the post-World War II period to make Conant's view of the democratic high school problematic, at least in large metropolitan areas. (SLD)
