Class Ideology and Community Education (Hardcover) (Will Cowburn)
about this item
The cultural, social and political existence of the working class were critical factors leading to the nineteenth century provision of a class-based education system. Changes in the organisation of this system have sought to pursue many of its original aims. Community education is an important new mechanism which would guarantee the continued provision of this class-based system. This book, first published in 1986, is primarily a critique of community education. It provides a constructive analysis of community education’s contradictions to bring about educational change of long term benefit to the working class. This title will be of interest to students of sociology and education.
