State, Governmentality and Education--the Nordic Experience.
Kivinen, Osmo; Rinne, Risto
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v19 n1 p39-52 Mar 1998
Interrogates the prevailing concept of the state as a regulative idea. Introduces Michel Foucault's notion of "governmentality" and investigates how it has historically been linked to education and to the Scandinavian "Caring State." Explores changing tasks of education and the nature of social contracts that could correspond to the new social conditions. (CMK)
