Teaching: The Issues Perestroika Neglected
Scott, Joanna Vecchiarelli; Smith, Rogers M.
PS: Political Science and Politics, v43 n4 p751-752 Oct 2010
A decade ago, we were among the scholars in political science who proudly associated ourselves with the Perestroika movement and its calls for greater respect for a range of productive methods, more substantively significant political research, and a more internally democratic profession. We retain those commitments. But Perestroikans have failed to focus on some broader trends in political science and the modern American academy that pose threats that are arguably still deeper, still more unjust, and still harder to overcome. In regard to what political scientists do that this society values most--teaching--we have a significant and growing equity deficit in the discipline.
