Another Look at Distributive Justice and the Social Studies.
Gregg, Dennis R.
Social Education, v55 n7 p421-23 Nov-Dec 1991
Discusses distributive justice in teaching social studies. Argues that utilitarianism is an inadequate basis for distributive justice because it does not allow for the primacy of civil or natural rights. Suggests addressing such issues in class to encourage student consideration of fundamental principles and their application to contemporary concerns. (DK)
