Education as a Social Control Mechanism.
Bacchus, M. K.
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v25 n3 p160-73 Sep 1979
With the abolition of slavery, most West Indian planters dramatically changed their attitudes toward education for Blacks, suddenly favoring it. This paper examines reasons behind the attitudinal changes, the planters' perceptions on the role of education for Blacks, and the use of education as a mechanism for social control. (DS)
