Cultural Themes in Educational Debates: The Nature-Culture Opposition in Accounts of Unequal Educational Performance.
Carrier, James G.
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v5 n1 p33-47 1984
An analysis of naturalistic educational psychology and sociological Marxist explanations of unequal educational performance shows that the debate is shaped by a fundamental theme in Western culture: the nature-culture opposition. Educational performance is influenced by the social and political interests of educators and researchers and by more basic cultural concerns. (Author/RM)
