The Social Construction of Adequacy.
First, Patricia F.; Miron, Louis F.
Journal of Law and Education, v20 n4 p421-44 Fall 1991
Demonstrates how the legal, educational, and technical determination of adequacy is a process of social construction. Identifies the social values of accountability, responsibility, and community as underpinning the societal consensus building around the concept of a "minimally adequate education." At present, educational reform does not take account of community values. (82 references) (MLF)
