Cultural Maintenance and Cultural Transformation: Educational Anthropology in the Eighties.
Schensul, Jean J.
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v16 n1 p63-68 Spr 1985
Reviews the status of educational anthropology. Argues that (1) anthropology's strength lies in understanding groups; (2) the complexity of the gap between a school and its community must be better understood; (3) anthropological research offers theoretical paradigms for understanding educational problems holistically; and (4) without significant social change, change inside the classroom is unlikely.
