MACOS in Queensland: The Politics of Educational Knowledge.
Smith, R. A.; Knight, J.
Australian Journal of Education, V22 n3 p225-48 Oct 1978
In 1977, religious fundamentalists in Queensland attacked MACOS, a primary social studies course. Content analysis of fundamentalist writings and MACOS materials shows them diametrically opposed in cultural presuppositions. Subsequent government banning of MACOS is seen as a political move to enforce on schools the views of the political elite. (SJL)
