Example text

1976, p. 2) We wrote that the refusal to allow “material concerns to infiltrate the world of thought underlies the traditional British segregation of theoretical and practice, of abstract and technical knowledge” (p. 5). Through such institutionalized separations, the distinction between manual and mental work was replicated. Different educational agencies contributed to this project in an extraordinary division of labor, separating knowledge reproduction (families and schools) from production (universities and elite expert knowledge).

121) Apple’s concept of advocacy research was unusually explicit in his writing. In the context of the 1970s, it was entirely appropriate for an academic educationalist to declare publicly that: “To be just and equal, schools must contribute to the advantage of the least advantaged. … Education … must play a part with other economic and social institutions in redistributing cultural and economic capital more justly” (Apple, 1976b, p. 121). However, the notion of agency (whether for academics or teachers or indeed pupils) was problematic from the beginning.

The discursive constructions of gender, social class, ethnicity, sexuality, and disability were simultaneous and not often commensurate. Engagement with these discursive constructions, which accounted for the multiple messages the school and its structures and pupils responded to in complex ways, could not be assumed to be captured by resistance theory. Young people were positioned by these discursive frameworks but also active in positioning themselves, working and reworking their identities in relation with others.
