Toward a Renaissance in Curriculum Theory and Development in the USA
Wraga, William G.; Hlebowitsh, Peter S.
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v35 n4 p425-437 Jul 2003
The curriculum field in the USA has existed in a chronic state of disarray, even crisis, for many years. This study considers whether the field's "reconceptualization" has alleviated the signs of crisis articulated some 30 years ago by Joseph Schwab. It concludes by suggesting that four issues should be examined in order to establish a vital sense of community among curriculum scholars and to create favourable conditions for a renaissance in the US scholarly field of curriculum theory and development.
