I was about to say something very similar about Bernstein on this in relationto BBs input also... mustbe the zeitgeist.
BB and I want to understand how come many start to become alienated in 'schooling'; one answer is that that is the function of 'schooling as a preparation for work', but as you suggest Bernstein gives a look into the processes in school, the pedagogic discourses that mediate this.
(How) Can we really change 'pedagogy' so that it is not alienating?
