The Role of Professional Knowledge in Reading Reform.
Pearson, P. David
Language Arts, v81 n1 p14-15 Sep 2003
Discusses the current political situation in the United States and the ways in which literacy education, particularly reading education, has been socially constructed and politically situated in the last several years. Suggests that the policies educators are currently implementing will lead to a generation of teachers who pay homage to externally imposed standards rather than to the needs of children and their families.
