From Reproduction to Learning Cultures: Post-Compulsory Education in England
Avis, James
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v27 n3 p341-354 Jul 2006
This paper examines recent empirical work on the lived experience of learners in post-compulsory education. The starting point is a brief examination of the socio-economic context of the sector. Despite the sophistication of analyses of learning cultures, a more radical approach is needed. Failure to do so renders these analyses amenable to appropriation by "new labour" modernisers.
