Education systems and the formation of societal consensus on justice

Education systems and the formation of societal consensus on justice We scrutinize whether the consensus on economic justice prevailing in a society is shaped by institutions, especially by education systems. We argue that social cohesion is ensured by the magnitude of consensus on justice rather than its content. Thus, we take the magnitude of consensus as our dependent variable abstracting it from its content. We examine the impact of various institutions on this variable by using set-theory based arguments, bootstrapping and multivariate models. The findings suggest that the sense of justice in society is significantly shaped by the institutional characteristics of the education system. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quality & Quantity Springer Journals

Abstract

We scrutinize whether the consensus on economic justice prevailing in a society is shaped by institutions, especially by education systems. We argue that social cohesion is ensured by the magnitude of consensus on justice rather than its content. Thus, we take the magnitude of consensus as our dependent variable abstracting it from its content. We examine the impact of various institutions on this variable by using set-theory based arguments, bootstrapping and multivariate models. The findings suggest that the sense of justice in society is significantly shaped by the institutional characteristics of the education system.
