Strange Curricula: Origins and Development of the Institutional Categories of Schooling.
Reid, William A.
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v22 n3 p203-16 May-Jun 1990
Examines educational history to discover the process by which curriculum became a universal idea and how the concept of the classroom was invented. Argues that universal ideas and inventions such as the classroom result in the creation of dominant institutional categories that exert a powerful influence over what can or cannot be done by curriculum planners.
