Childhood-as-rescue in the emergence and spread of the U.S. public school

Baker, B. (1998) Childhood-as-rescue in the emergence and spread of the U.S. public school. In Popkewitz, T. & Brennan, M. (Eds.) Foucault's Challenge, Discourse, Knowledge and Power in Education. Teachers College Press, New York, pp. 117-143.


In this volume, the editors have brought together prominent international contributors to examine the relevance of Foucauldian thought on educational theory, practice and institutional life. The result is a diverse collection that offers broad and engaging analyses of how power and knowledge are configured in the practices and norms of schooling. This text not only provides a critical examination of the significance of Foucauldian thought for education, but also discusses how Foucault's theories are arrayed in the everyday life of schools.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
