Language, Difference, and Curriculum Theory: Beyond the Politics of Clarity.
Giroux, Henry A.
Theory into Practice, v31 n3 p219-27 Sum 1992
Discusses controversy over language, clarity, and experience in educational theory, recommending a language theory that recognizes complexity and difference. Linguistic clarity suppresses differences and multiplicity and reproduces a populist elitism that disempowers educators. People need knowledge and skills to be able to govern and shape society. (SM)
