The Needs of Children: Is There Any Value in the Concept?
Woodhead, Martin
Oxford Review of Education, v13 n2 p129-39 1987
Notes that the concept of children's needs is central to rationales for education and attempts to unravel the basis on which children's needs are stipulated. Identifies the bases for stating children's needs as (1) basic qualities of human nature, (2) prerequisites for mental health, (3) processes of cultural adaptation, and (4) conformity with dominant social values.
