Radical Reform Within a Liberal and Democratic Framework? Rawls and the Radical Critique of Schooling.
Claus, John F.
Educational Theory, v31 n2 p153-65 Spr 1981
The radical critique of American education portrays the schools as perpetuators of ethnic, social, and racial inequalities because they do not alter existing class relations. John Rawls' theory of social justice is discussed as an alternative approach to this situation that remains firmly grounded in the liberal tradition. (PP)
