Postmodernism and Educational Reform. Review Essay.
Carlson, Dennis
Educational Policy, v6 n4 p444-56 Dec 1992
Thomas Popkewitz's book "A Political Sociology of Educational Reform: Power/Knowledge in Teaching, Teacher Education, and Research" (1991) is essential reading for those trying to understand the implications of postmodern and poststructural theories in critical education studies. Modernist ideals should not be abandoned, but rather appropriated from their positivist representations and reconstructed according to democratic values and ethical commitments. (MLH)
