Childhood as Ideology: A Reinterpretation of the Common School.
Schnell, R. L.
British Journal of Educational Studies, v27 n1 p7-28 Feb 1979
Working from Philippe Aries'"Centuries of Childhood," the author argues that nineteenth century demands for the education of children may be reinterpreted as the creation of a means of keeping children in a state of dependence and so maintaining a defense for anxious adults. (Editor)
