The purpose for this article is to explore technology education from the perspective of the academic rationalist. Such an exploration is intended to provide information for technology educators who are grappling with education reform since it appears that the reforms of the 1980s are based on academic rationalism curriculum theory. This exploration includes consideration of the theoretical perspective, rationale, source of content, organizational structure, perceived advantages, and unresolved issues.
