The Conduit Metaphor in the Rhetoric of Education Reform: A Critique of Hidden Assumptions.
Gozzi, Raymond, Jr.
New Jersey Journal of Communication, v6 n1 p81-89 Spr 1998
Describes the conduit metaphor for communication, which is encoded into everyday English, and which models communication as putting ideas into messages, sending messages across pipelines, then taking the ideas out of messages. Notes that this metaphor for education means more technology and fewer teachers. Proposes another metaphor for communication, resonance metaphors, which leads to different prescriptions for education reform. (PA)
