School and Family in the Postmodern World.
Elkind, David
Phi Delta Kappan, v77 n1 p8-14 Sep 1995
The modern school reflected modern society and the nuclear family; today's school mirrors the kinship structure and values of postmodern society and the permeable family. Assumptions of sociological differences, particularity, and irregularity are supplanting modernist beliefs in social progress, universality, and regularity. Children's competence is valued, as schools assume parental functions. (12 references) (MLH)
