Research in the Field of Social Studies


Wiliam B. Stanley has spent his academic and teaching career asking social studies educators to challenge traditional ideas imbedded in the social studies. His ideas of reconstructionism placed him at the forefront of more critical investigations of civic education 30 years ago. Today he continues to address philosophic and historical knowledge of educational and social issues. The trajectory of his career has sustained an outspoken and articulate researcher for justice and fairness in education.
