"Struggling for the Soul: The Politics of Schooling and the Construction of the Teacher" by T. Popkewitz. Book Review.
Corbett, Mike
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v16 n2 p141-45 Fall 2000
Reviews an ethnographic analysis of Teach for America, a 1990 educational reform program that illustrates how underlying assumptions about "marginal" urban and rural students and their "deficient" environments solidify existing power structures, acculturate students to middle-class norms, generate resistance to teachers, and ensure failure to achieve real change. Discusses four problems with the book, including lack of students' perspectives. (Contains 26 references.) (TD)
