Schoolhouse Rock Foucaultian Style

Ahh Schoolhouse Rock, my childhood friend how you deceive me. According to Foucault Schoolhouse Rock is right. Knowledge is power. "Power-knowledge" is Foucault's term which shows the close correlation between power and knowledge. This definition implies serious consequences. Knowledge can never be neutral, it is determined by those in power. So this simple Schoolhouse Rock clip isn't as simple as meets the eye.
