From Here to Where?--"Disadvantaged Schools," Literacy and Policy.
English in Australia, n131 p19-32 Jul 2001
Argues that the abolishment of the Disadvantaged Schools Program (DSP) in South Australia represented a shift away from a focus on the social to the individual, from curriculum to instruction, from school-based inquiry and teacher research to expert solutions, and from various contexted and contested outcomes to a singular and simplistic version of literacy. Suggests a renewed policy approach. (SG)
