Smyth, John
Elementary School Journal, v100 n5 p491-511 May 2000
Argues that contemporary society is increasingly experiencing a loss of social capital. Maintains that this loss takes expression in the increasing tendency, as reflected in school reforms and restructuring, of regarding teachers' work in technical terms. Advocates regarding teaching as a social practice in which there is greater emphasis on teaching for social responsibility, democracy, social justice, and civility. (Author/KB)
