The Meaning of Place and Community in Contemporary Educational Discourse
Siskar, John; Theobald, Paul
Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, v1 n2 p58-78 2008
Place and community are terms used with ever more frequency in discussions, reports, and research related to education, yet there is little agreement related to what these terms mean. This article examines the concepts of place and community in an attempt to bring more clarity to the role they may play in educational theory and, ultimately, educational policy.
