Abstract

Q starts with the observation that schooling in the USA, obsessed with testing, has in a brief generation become anti-intellectual and anti-democratic, which provides the context of his study on ritual in school. ... The thesis of the book is that the character of schooling is determined by unplanned and unrecognised nonrational (‘ritual’) processes, that is, formalised symbolic performances. (etc.)
