Divide and school : gender and class dynamics in comprehensive education by John Abraham ( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 195 libraries worldwide
This book is concerned with how comprehensive schooling can act as a social system of class and gender differentiation. Based on a critical synthesis of feminist and sociological literature on secondary education, Abraham develops a theoretical and methodological framework for ethnographic research into the central gender and class dynamic of a comprehensive school. These include: the differential impact of streaming on middle class and working class pupils; the gender dimensions of deviant pupil's value systems: teachers' sex-stereotyping and ideologies; the construction of subject options; and the sex roles in curriculum texts. He argues that the comprehensive school does not necessarily challenge dominant class and gender divisions in society, and can serve to reproduce them.
