Literacies and Deficits Revisited.
Scott, Jerrie Cobb
Journal of Basic Writing, v12 n1 p46-56 Spr 1993
Identifies two factors that contribute to the recycling of deficit pedagogy in programs targeted for marginalized students: traditional, technocratic definitions of literacy; and "uncritical dysconsciousness" (the acceptance of culturally sanctioned beliefs that, regardless of good intentions, defend the advantages of insiders and the disadvantages of outsiders).
