Rethinking the Education/State Formation Connection: Pedagogic Reform in Singapore, 1945-1965.
Wong, Ting-Hong; Apple, Michael
Comparative Education Review, v46 n2 p182-210 May 2002
Previous studies of the role of education in state-building have neglected the relative autonomy and non-neutral stance of the school system. Bernstein's notion of "pedagogic device" is used to illuminate conflicts and contradictions between educational development and state-building in the case of Singapore's efforts to control the curriculum of Chinese schools and thereby promote social integration of the Chinese minority. Contains references. (SV)
