Economies of Space and the School Geography Curriculum
Morgan, John
Curriculum Journal, v19 n4 p325-335 Dec 2008
This article is about the images of economic space that are found in school curricula. It suggests the importance for educators of evaluating these representations in terms of the messages they contain about how social processes operate. The article uses school geography texts in Britain since the 1970s to illustrate the different ways in which economic space has been represented to students, before exploring some alternative resources that could be used to provide a wider range of representations of economic space. It highlights the continued importance of understanding the politics of school knowledge.
