The Social-Reconstructive Wedge: A Model for Restructuring Curriculum.
Hawkins, Vincent J.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v6 n4 p366-69 Sum 1991

The "social-reconstructive wedge" model described in this article addresses this paradoxical issue by treating the school system as a social system where constituents interact according to certain norms and behaviors.
