Sarangapani, Padma M.
Comparative Education, v39 n2 p199-209 May 2003

Features of this instruction, which is experiential and geared to the apprentice's levels of interest and ability, raise questions about the feasibility of including indigenous knowledge in school curricula, where practices and underlying assumptions are very different.
