In this engaging and accessible volume, Jane Roland Martin develops a brilliantly innovative approach to education that illuminates one of the most pressing issues of our day - the passing down of ""cultural liabilities,"" such as violence in the home, school, and world at large and hatred of other races, religions, genders, ethnicities, or sexual orientations. By encouraging readers to look at education from the standpoint of culture, new questions emerge: How is a culture's wealth to be defined? Who is qualified to contribute to it? How can we preserve a culture's assets for the next generation? Cultural Miseducation: Constructs a new framework for viewing education, school, and curriculum. Develops more inclusive, democratic definitions of culture and citizenship. Expands the concept of educational agency to include all groups and institutions in our society. Covers such important issues as a national curriculum, violence in the media, hate speech, censorship, and standardized testing.
