Patriotism in Question
Kvitka, Joan Kent
Phi Delta Kappan, v87 n8 p593 Apr 2006
Over three decades of teaching, the author has come to a deep understanding of the commitment she made in swearing her loyalty to a governing system dedicated to the virtues of democracy and equality for all--both those within the diverse society and those across a global mosaic of cultures. Every day in the classroom, teachers and students alike put into practice the patience and courage of citizenship. Being patriotic is not simply embracing "America right or wrong." Being patriotic requires the audacity to explore equally what is right and wrong about the nation and the courage to accept responsibility for both.
