Education And Falling Wages, Lester C. Thurow Jun 1994

Education And Falling Wages, Lester C. Thurow

New England Journal of Public Policy

Start with a statistic that should be burned into the brain of every American. If one looks at young males eighteen to twenty-five years of age who work full-time for a full year — eight hours a day, five days a week, fifty-two weeks a year — 18 percent of them could not earn a poverty-line income ($12,183 in 1990 dollars) in 1980. Ten years later, in 1990, that number had risen to 40 percent. Among young female workers eighteen to twenty-four years of age, the percentage unable to earn a poverty-line income despite full-time, full-year work rises from 29 to ...

He outlines organizational change, curriculum and instruction modification, and school culture transformation.


The Deep Creek School: Technology, Ecology And The Body As Pedagogical Alternatives In Art Education, Daniel L. Collins, Charles R. Garoian Jan 1994

The Deep Creek School: Technology, Ecology And The Body As Pedagogical Alternatives In Art Education, Daniel L. Collins, Charles R. Garoian

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The Deep Creek School is grappling with a cultural condition in which the line between actual experience and its simulation has become blurred as never before. Today’s students are conversant in the language of electronic media and consumer culture--but they encounter difficulties when trying to navigate the real crises in the health of their bodies and the global environment. There is a deep sense among many of the artists and educators that we speak with that art programs nationwide are not responding sufficiently to the dramatic changes occurring in the culture at large. The precedent of fitting programs to ...

Valuing Difference: Luce Irigaray And Feminist Pedagogy, Yvonne Gaudelius Jan 1994

Valuing Difference: Luce Irigaray And Feminist Pedagogy, Yvonne Gaudelius

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The anonymous worker- the mother, the teacher- the anonymous woman. Woman defined by her fixed place in the system of reproduction. How has this come to be? How has woman become-how does she remain-an anonymous instrument in the reproduction of patriarchy? How does social reproduction relate to the position of woman as mother-as the “vehicle” of physical reproduction? In this paper, I tie questions such as these to the discipline of education, and to women's role in the underlying ideologies of our educational system. In order to do so I will approach these questions from three distinct vantage points ...


Art, Education, Work, And Leisure: Tangles In The Lifelong Learning Network, Lara M. Lackey Jan 1994

Art, Education, Work, And Leisure: Tangles In The Lifelong Learning Network, Lara M. Lackey

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Although the field of art education has, in recent years, acknowledged the prevalence of non-formal educational sites, our literature is divided on whether this trend poses an opportunity for cooperation and strength or a threat to the status of art as a school subject. This paper consults the literature of critical theory within the domains of art, education, and leisure studies in order to examine the relationship between formal and non-formal art education. First, it considers ways in which tradition conceptualizations of art, education, leisure, and work foster an acceptance of art as experience and knowledge to be gained outside ...
