Stewart's article published in state newspaper
Patrick Stewart, Public Administration, wrote an op-ed column
that appeared recently on the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette's Voices page.
As a follow-up to recent public discussion on appropriate
curriculum for high school students, Stewart wrote that the
importance of teaching citizenship skills has been overlooked. He
bases his conclusion partially on his findings through ASU's Center
for Social Research.
