Desire and Discipline in Primary Education.
Lynch, Dennis A.; Hilles, Sharon L.
Issues in Applied Linguistics, v7 n2 p189-208 Dec 1996
Discusses the dynamic nature of the struggle between desire and discipline in an elementary school setting. Emphasizes that these competing forces and the ensuing struggle profoundly affect a child's secondary socialization. Findings reveal that even very young children acquiesce to and resist authority in many ways, learning complicated lessons in the process. (42 references) (Author/CK)
