Corporate Discourses in School: Adapting to the Prevailing Economic Climate.
Bettis, Pamela J.
Educational Foundations, v14 n1 p23-49 Win 2000
Examines adaptations made by one high school when the surrounding city shifted from a textile mill-driven manufacturing economy to a post-industrial service economy. Using data from an extended field study, the paper examines how school discourses emerged from three related sources (a corporate sponsor, competition for good students, and preparing students for a changed workplace).
