It analyses how power, gender and knowledge intersect to determine how school knowledge is constructed, what knowledge is made available to which students, who supplies the knowledge, and how./par0/par0/Carrie Paechter provides a much-needed reconceptualization of the field of curriculum that will be of practical and theoretical relevance to teachers, students and academics reflecting upon curriculum processes in schools.

About the Author:

Carrie Paechter is a Lecturer in Education at the Open University. Her research interests, which developed from her experience as a mathematics teacher in London secondary schools, include the intersection of gender, power and knowledge, and the processes of curriculum negotiation in schools and higher education institutions.

Review:

“...her passionate analysis of the micro patterns of power helps the reader to understand the ‘whole picture’ of English secondary schooling at the opening of the 21st century, within her frames of reference of power and gender.” – British Journal of Educational Studies (Brit Jnl of Educational Studies 2003-10-28)

"...overall, this is a cogently argued, stimulating and very readable book with much to say on power/knowledge/ gender relations and attempts to change traditional curriculum patterns in schools.

I most strongly recommend it." - Ruth Watts (Gender & Education 2003-06-20)
