Possibilities and Limits for Democratisation in Education.
Davies, Lynn
Comparative Education, v38 n3 p251-66 Aug 2002
Examines connections between democratization of schooling and three dimensions of social structure: political system and governance, wealth/poverty, and gender relations. Discusses nine processes and strategies for democratization in education: definition of democracy, legislation and policy, decentralization of education, teacher education, teacher unions and networks, parental participation, student associations, partnerships with outside agencies, and research. Considers larger questions of international influence and relativism. (SV)
