Assuring Quality for the Social Studies in Our Schools
The social studies curriculum in the elementary and secondary schools of the United States is the basic core for conveying to new generations the concepts, values, and abilities that will allow our society to survive and prosper. In the 1950s, Paul Hanna's concern over the adequacy of courses being taught and the lack of a cohesive structure that would inspire the values of a democratic nation led him to advocate a standard national curriculum for social studies to be used throughout the public school system. This book contains reprints of arcticles by Hanna written from 1957 to 1965, presenting his ideas on such a curriculum and stating his recognition of the potential dangers of a federally dictated school curriculum.
