Ralph Ketcham, an advocate of efforts to revitalize citizenship education, has been named "professor of the year" by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, an association of colleges, universities, and independent schools.

A Syracuse University professor of political science, history, and public affairs, Mr. Ketcham proposed a mod4el curriculum for a civics course that New York high schools will require next year. The curriculum stresses ways students can participate in government and approaches public policy with an eye to "the polity as a whole more than a collection of special interests," a view Mr. Ketcham outlines in Individualism and Public Life, to be published this fall.--dg
