Hi, my name is Marc Beerline and I am a senior at TunderRidge High School, a suburb of Denver. As a graduation requirement, we are required to do a "senior project"; in most cases, this project is a horse-and-show type of project where most students are awarded enthuastic A's for projects like "rebuilding my Mustang". I'm looking to do a Foucaultian critique of the public education system, in particular, the Power/Knowledge relationship within public schools--espeically with the pressures of standardized tests and the No Child Left Behind Act, either that or a cultural critique of American taboo. My only fear, unfortunately is that those on the board will not understand the significance of what I am researching, especially in terms of what the 'standards' of the project itself are. I am also struggling with how I could present this in some sort of presentation with something physcially tangible, as it is a requirement for the project. I do see the irony in my proposal and dillema. I
also need help with the specificity with what I am researching and how I am to go about doing it. Any suggestions would be great. Sorry, that was far from coherent.
