Editorial Reviews

Review

'Can give you some idea of the vision you are trying to transmit amidst all those examination results' - Management in Education

'The powerful ideas ... in the First Edition have gained ... urgency from the realities of the political policies for education which the intervening years have witnessed in both the USA and the UK. ..... the book s main theme - the narrowness of the concept of education encapsulated in those policies - gains added force from the growing predominance of technicist approaches to curriculum planning' - --Professor A V Kelly, Goldsmiths College, University of London

Format: Paperback
Read it in the 80s! Great to find it again. A great "defense" for the arts as a basic and equal part of the curriculum.
