An Open Letter to President Barack Obama from C. Frederick Risinger
Risinger, C. Frederick
Social Education, v74 n6 p338-339 Nov-Dec 2010
This article presents an open letter to President Barack Obama written by the author to express his concerns about the increasing emphasis on mathematics and science education along with the continued emphasis on reading/language arts while a fourth major curriculum area--social studies--is being marginalized by lack of funding and reduced interest on the part of the U.S. Department of Education, state departments of education, and the movement toward national common educational standards. In this letter, the author is urging for a stronger national commitment to citizenship education.
