Patriotism in British Schools: Teachers' and Students' Perspectives
Hand, Michael; Pearce, Joanne
Educational Studies, v37 n4 p405-418 2011

Here we report on a small-scale survey of teachers and students in secondary schools and show that their perspectives and practices are highly compatible with our recommended approach.
