Cultural Transmission and Economic Development: A Critique of Educational Positivism.
Alexander, Chanan
Educational Theory, v31 n3-4 p351-58 Sum-Fall 1981

Assumptions guiding both types of education are shaped by capitalist or socialist myths that are deeply rooted in Western culture. Underdeveloped countries must invent their own myths to effect change through education. (PP)
