Childhood and Postcolonization: Power, Education, and Contemporary Practice

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2004 - Education - 182 pages
This book opens the door to the effects of intellectual, educational, and economic colonization of young children throughout the world. Using a postcolonial lens on current educational practices, the authors hope to lift those practices out of reproducing traditional power structures and push our thinking beyond the adult/child dichotomy into new possibilities for the lives that are created with children.
