Ideology and Curriculum
With the current conservative emphasis on cultural literacy and on a return to a common culture, Ideology and Curriculum - with its stress on the dangers of ideological indoctrination in schools and on the power relations involved in what is taught - serves as a reminder that our educational policies and practices are never neutral. This revised paperback edition contains a new preface in which the author extends the book's arguments and places them in the current conservative context in education in society at large. A path-breaking statement of the relationship between cultural and economic power in education, Mike Apple's book has had a profound impact on the international debate about education and democracy.
