Images of America: What Youth Do Know about the United States.
Cornbleth, Catherine
American Educational Research Journal, v39 n2 p519-52 Sum 2002
Interviewed 25 high school seniors and juniors from three schools in the northeastern United States about their images of America. Three themes predominated: (1) inequity associated with race, gender, socioeconomic status, or disability; (2) freedom, including rights and opportunities; and (3) diversity of race, ethnicity, culture, and geography. In general, what students know is supportive of the nation-state. (SLD)
