Dilemmas of Equity in Art Education: Ideologies of Individualism and Cultural Capital.
Practices intended to promote equity, reproduce inequity. Theories based on belief in individualism concentrate attention on individual differences, removing social differentiations. Being concerned with the formation of common culture, art educators present aesthetic objects as culturally neutral, devoid of the context from which they were produced, thus presenting the illusion that a hierarchy of aesthetic quality exists that is fixed and agreed upon.
