Educational Criticism as a New Specialization
Leonardo, Zeus
Research in Education, v96 n1 p87-92 Nov 2016
This article argues that a new specialization in education has been developing: educational criticism. It takes as its model the existing fields of criticism found in other disciplines, mainly in literature, or literary criticism. The article outlines the central features of educational criticism as a new specialization, guided by a program of study around themes including the function of criticism and role of the intellectual. As an example, Edward Said's contrapuntal analysis provides a point of departure for forging ahead with educational criticism.
