Overview

Over the past decade there has been much theoretical work on the relationship between schooling and economic and cultural reproduction. A good deal of this research has remained outside the school, not going inside to examine the actual curriculum and teaching practices that go on every day in the classroom.

Ideology and Practice in Schooling brings together investigations of the content and organization of the curriculum and the experience of teachers and students in schools. Included are ideological analyses of history, art, literature, economics, and science curricula, as well as ethnographic studies of the lived culture of student oppositional practices, changes in the control of teachers' work, the experience of minority students at community colleges, of girls in a secretarial training program, and of children in primary schools. Each original essay blends together recent work on the nature of the relationship between society and education with an in-depth examination of the internal practices of schooling, and also points out where there are possibilities for emancipatory educational action.
