Educating Lone Wolves: Pedagogical Implications of Human Capital Theory.
Baptiste, Ian
Adult Education Quarterly, v51 n3 p184-201 May 2001
Educational practices based on human capital theory are unlikely to alleviate social inequities because the theory views people as isolated materialists driven by desire for goods and security. It assumes an educational meritocracy in which socioeconomic status is limited only by educational investment, and more educated people are presumed to be more productive. (Contains 62 references.)
