The Disadvantaged: Challenge to Education.
Fantini, Mario D.; Weinstein, Gerald
The major thesis of this new approach to pedagogy is that through an understanding of the problems of disadvantaged children the educational problems of all children will be better understood. The functionalism of John Dewey has been brought up to date in this book through the propositions that curriculum should move from the remote to the immediate, and from the academic to the participatory. Chapters are devoted to an expansion of the concept of the disadvantaged, the hidden curriculum, language development in the home, the irrelevance of contemporary education, and the functions of the schools. Other sections are concerned with strategies for change, the teacher, and a discussion of a relevant curriculum. (NH)
