Persistence of the Inevitable: The Teacher-Centered Classroom.
Cuban, Larry
Education and Urban Society, v15 n1 p26-41 Nov 1982
High school teaching practices have resisted change since 1900 and remain essentially teacher centered. This stability may be explained by: (1) the deterministic influence of classroom organizational structures; (2) innate conservatism in teaching; (3) teachers' enduring beliefs about educational goals; and (4) society's economic structure which encourages instructional practices that foster passivity and obedience.
