Sociology and School Knowledge: Curriculum Theory, Research and Politics - Routledge Library Editions: Sociology of Education 59 (Hardback)Geoff Whitty (author)
- We can order this
The rise of a radical `new' sociology of education during the early 1970s focused attention on the nature of school knowledge. Although this new approach was set to revolutionize the subject, within a few years, many people considered these developments an eccentric interlude, with little relevance to curriculum theory or practice.
First published in 1985, this book offers a more positive view of the new sociology of education and its contribution to our understanding of the curriculum. In doing so, it argues that some of the radical promise of the new sociology of education could be realised, but only if sociologists, teachers and political movements of the left work more closely together.
