Curriculum Convergence: An Ethno-Historical Investigation into Schooling in Trinidad and Tobago.
London, Norrel A.
Comparative Education, v38 n1 p53-72 Feb 2002
An ethnohistorical study of a small rural elementary school in Trinidad and Tobago during the colonial period (1931-53) examines four ideologies--mental discipline, social efficiency, humanism, and child study--that underlay curriculum planning and pedagogical practices and converged to maintain the colonial state. The postcolonial persistence of colonial educational practices is discussed. (Contains 76 references.) (SV)
