Social studies: Some gulfs and priorities

by Howard D. Mehlinger - 1981

Many problems besetting social studies have been explicated in preceding chapters. This essay makes no attempt to summarize all that has been set forth earlier. Rather, it will account for much of the malaise in social studies by identifying and describing three "gulfs" that cripple the social studies and by pointing out how these gulfs affect the capacity of the field to respond to its most pressing "priorities."
