Title CONSERVATIVE APPROACHES TO REFORMING SCHOOL EDUCATION IN THE USA. SOCIAL CONserVATiveS vs NEOCONSERVATIVES
Author(-s) Zolotykh V.R.
Abstract The article evaluates the viewpoints and proposals of American neoconservatives and social conservatives in regard to reforming the system of education in 1990s. The author attempts to track the evolution of concepts and to determine the hierarchy of priorities. A detailed analysis of neoconservatives’ and social conservatives’ viewpoints on the problems of school education allows to see the features of the conservative approach on the ideological level, as well as on the level of philosophical and cultural understanding of reality. The article describes the difference between educational policies of neoconservatives and social conservatives. Special attention is paid to the discussion among conservatives on the content of educational programs, to the educational program of George W. Bush. The article examines the key documents of the Republican Party that were initiated by the neoconservatives and social conservatives. The article explains the educational policy as an important factor in analyzing the conservative movement.
