Ideology and Aesthetic Education.
Swanger, David
Journal of Aesthetic Education, v15 n2 p33-44 Apr 1981
The author argues that education, being an ideology, is essentially conservative, while the idea of art is always radical. Art and ideology are therefore intrinsically incompatible but, rather than retreat into art for art's sake, aesthetic educators should confront ideology and promote the arts as a stimulus for social change.
