The Connections between Poverty Discourse and Educational Reform: When Did "Reform" Become Synonymous with Inattention?
Engvall, Robert P.
Urban Review, v28 n2 p141-63 Jun 1996
Presents the view that genuine educational reform is impossible in today's political, social, and economic climate. Today's policymakers are not truly antipoverty and do not truly care about the plight of the less fortunate. The current preoccupation with economic progress means that reform has come to mean inattention. (SLD)
