Ideology and Curriculum

Ideology and Curriculum--with its stress on the dangers of ideological imposition in schools and on the power relations involved in what is taught--serves as a reminder that our educational policies and practices are never neutral. This second edition

contains a new preface in which the author extends the book's arguments and places them in the current conservative context in education and the larger society.
