The Colonization of (M)Others in Welfare-to-Work Education.
Bloom, Leslie Rebecca; Kilgore, Deborah
Educational Policy, v17 n3 p365-84 Jul 2003
Argues that welfare reform policies colonize poor mothers. Using ethnographic data of a welfare-to-work educational program, analyzes how colonizing public and governmental discourses about welfare mothers infiltrate the program's educational policy and everyday practices. Asserts that welfare-to-work neither fully colonizes nor fully educates, but rather produces a resistant student. (Contains 47 references.) (Authors/PKP)
