Nowhere To Go: Basic Writing and the Scapegoating of Civic Failure.
Stevens, Scott
Journal of Basic Writing, v21 n1 p3-15 Spr 2002
Considers the consequences of expelling California State University students who do not complete remediation within one year. Proposes that the lack of educational choices is analogous to the institutionalized absence of alternatives for basic writing programs. Analyzes the contradictory rhetoric of official policy, linking the elitist return to standards to the defunding of public education in California during the 1970s. (SG)
