Vision and the Legitimate Order: Theorizing Today to Imagine Tomorrow
Conservatory of Music
This chapter focuses on two distinct, but related, issues: (1) the "structural forces that help to determine who gets to be a music teacher and" who does not and (2) the ways in which institutional professionalization and "bureaucratization may be working to disenfranchise certain groups of people." The problem we perceive is the ability of music teacher educators to respond "to social change as part of a commitment to social equity within the constraints" of what Max Weber called vorstellung, the belief in a "legitimate" order.
