The Mechanech: Role Function and Myth in Israeli Secondary Schools.
Gordon, David; Ackerman, Walter I.
Comparative Education Review, v28 n1 p105-15 Feb 1984
Attempts to show that under certain circumstances, hidden curricula of schools perform an important function in maintenance of character myths. Applies Ernest Gellner's concept of conceptual incoherence to the role of the "Mechanech" (similar to American homeroom teachers, with responsibilities for pastoral care and moral education) in Israeli secondary schools.
