The Operational Value of Human Capital Theory and Cultural Capital Theory in Social Stratification
Aziz, Abdul
Citizenship, Social and Economics Education, v14 n3 p230-241 Dec 2015
Policy prescriptions concerning the state of pedagogy by previous government administrations have transformed the education system into a market model where brand values and purchasing power appear to be increasingly dictating access to education rather than the ability to learn and meritocracy. This article explores the pervasion of market values and market norms into the realms of pedagogy and the influence of class power in determining the dispensation and consumption of human capital and cultural capital.
