Games of Chance: The Lower-Track Curriculum in a College-Preparatory High School.
Page, Reba N.
Curriculum Inquiry, v20 n3 p249-81 Fall 1990
Analyzes the relationship between curriculum and the surprising disengagement in a "heavenly" college preparatory high school of "professional" teachers and relatively advantaged lower track students. The regressive curriculum parodies a college campus atmosphere without providing lower track students with access to the "college" academics or prerogatives provided regular students. Includes 72 references. (MLH)
