Curriculum in Conflict: Social Visions, Educational Agendas and Progressive School Reform

The authors analyse the disparate views put forward in debates concerning both public school and university curricula, multiculturalism, the canon, and the aims of education. They also address the educational proposals and social, political, cultural and economic perspectives advanced by members of the new right, modern liberals, radicals and postmodernists. The book ends with innovative perspectives on social and educational reform, a progressive orientation that provides an agenda for significant change.
