Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This study aims to illuminate the consequences of an academic-minded public school and how it causes the students' development of competencies in a knowledge society. We will explore the political decisions taken in order of making schools more academic. We will analyze the intention and approach of the type of power that had been used to dictate this development. We investigate what impact the phenomenon of an academic-minded school has on creative and practical students recognition opportunities, and whether the ideal of the pupils in the public school match what is demanded skills in a business in an competitive knowledge society. Based on empirical evidence we will implicate Mitchell Dean, Pierre Bourdieu and Axel Honneth theories about, power, cultural capital and recognition. Through governmentality the politicians encourages an academic-minded school. The student’s amount of recognition is significant for how they handle the cultural barriers.
