Example text

Such experience 30 Trends and problems in social and educational equality suggests that the very slight long-term effects may arise more from the fundamentallack of change in the assumptions and values of formal education. The essential problem lies in later school experience rather than in the preschool years. This may indicate that greater concentration should be given to changing and improving later educational programmes. While students are increasingly required to invest heavily in education and schools gain increased power in society, we are less certain of the nature of the inequalities involved in definitions of disadvantage.

The tremendous increase in the social stock of knowledge and skills, especially its scientific and technological components, have led to changes in the definition of the valued knowledge and skills which education should transmit. This has brought to the forefront of educational debate a challenge to the traditional content of general education and arguments for inclusion of more valid and relevant knowledge appropriate to an increasingly technological society. The greater importance of science and technology in general social and cultural development has largely supported an attack on the elitist forms of encyclopaedic general education in European schools.

The social basis of this dominant ideology of educational development becomes clear, however, when we begin to ask questions such as who is learning? What is being learned? How is it being learned? and Where is it learned? and Who is providing the answers to these questions and in whose interests. A brief analysis of some key issues illustrates the basic political dimensions of education development, and suggests that, if there is a crisis, it is in fact a social crisis concerning the distri buti on ofpower and resources (Drouard 1972).
