Disengaging from the Legacy of Lady Bountiful in Teacher Education Classrooms.
Meiners, Erica R.
Gender and Education, v14 n1 p85-94 Mar 2002
Discusses the image of the archetypal, white, Lady Bountiful teacher, examining the historical colonial contexts that produced this archetype and the ideologies she represents. Argues that the persistence of this image in popular culture, teacher education programs, and beyond contributes to a climate that makes it difficult to address white supremacy, heteronormativity, and social class in teacher education.
