The Widening Gap between Education and Schooling in the Post 9/11 Era.
Shujaa, Mwalimu J.
Journal of Negro Education, v72 n2 p179-89 Spr 2003
Likens the educational tensions of the post 9-11 era to those of the Vietnam war period, asserting that education is a process of culture and identity transmission, while schooling is intended to ensure that status quo power relationships are maintained. Argues that for persons of African descent, education means developing knowledge bases grounded in the culture and history of the African world and interpreting reality through those knowledge bases.
