Epistemic Authority, Institutional Power, and Curricular Knowledge.
de Castell, Suzanne
Journal of Educational Thought, v16 n1 p23-28 Apr 1982
Contrasts Richard Peters' widely accepted analysis and justification of teacher authority with Nell Keddie's discussion of classroom knowledge. Contends that Peters' justification relies upon contrafactual presuppositions about what a teacher knows and teaches. Argues that authority, supposedly based on superior knowledge, is in fact an extension of institutional power. (WL)
