The Productivity of Students' Schoolwork: An Exercise in Marxist Rigour
Baldino, Roberto Ribeiro; Cabral, Tânia Cristina Baptista
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v11 n4 p70-84 Nov 2013
In this article we will use central elements in Mature Marx's theory of productive labour to prove that not only the work of teachers and staff but also the expenditure of students' muscles and nerves is productive labour. This theme has some intersection with the work of housewives that autonomist Marxism asserts to be productive labour too. We end the paper indicating further developments concerning how students produce and seize surplus-value.
