Multi-culturalism in Social Context: Conceptual Problems Raised by Educational Policy Issues
St. Lawrence, Theodora J.; Singleton, John
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, 7, 4, 19-23, Nov 76
Examines the implications for education of Goodenough's cognitive view of culture and of the conception of culture as a learned, shared symbol system. Suggests that "the failure of American schools to achieve efficient academic instruction is in part a result of their relationship to the existing class structures of our society." (Author/JM)
