Class, Race, and Gender and the Construction of Post-Secondary Curricula in the United States: Social Movement, Professionalization, and Political Economic Theories of Curricular Change.
Slaughter, Sheila
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v29 n1 p1-30 Jan-Feb 1997
Challenges the current belief that post-secondary curricula is defined by faculty and institutions in response to demographic shifts. Maintains that a complex interweaving of social movements, class structures, political, and economic forces influences the adaptation and implementation of curricula. Criticizes the establishment and the recognition of accepted academic knowledge. (MJP)
