Literacy Education for the 21st Century: It's Time To Close the Factory.
Leland, Christine H.; Kasten, Wendy C.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v18 n1 p5-15 Jan 2002
Examines the historical and theoretical foundations of the factory model of education and contrasts it to the more recently developed inquiry model. Argues that the factory model of education is no longer useful since democracy in the twenty-first century requires citizens who are able to think critically and use learning and language flexibly to construct knowledge in many ways and contexts.
