"Education as Contested Terrain: Nicaragua, 1979-1993" (Robert F. Arnove). Book Review.
Torres, Carlos Alberto
Bilingual Research Journal, v20 n1 p165-69 Win 1996
Reviews a book on the politics of educational change in Nicaragua, 1979-93. Following the revolution, the Sandinistas drastically revised curriculum and methods of instruction. However, when they lost political power, education in Nicaragua became contested terrain marked by fierce ideological debates, eventually rendering educational reform a failure. The book also addresses biases in Nicaraguan bilingual indigenous education. (LP)
