    Joshua Katz is a high school math teacher in Orange County, FL. Joshua's Talk: In the mid 1800's, Horace Mann captured the potential impact of education on society. We have yet to realize the potential he saw, and in fact, we are missing the mark by a wider and wider margin. We have created a "Toxic Culture of Education" in our country that is damaging students, impacting our economy, and threatening our future. Since the passage of No Child Left Behind, we have embraced a culture of high stakes testing and are perpetuating a false sense of failure in our schools. We have ignored research and data on effective policy making practices in order to serve the interest of private industries that have monetized our students.

  • Cultural Capital

    According to Pierre Bourdieu, cultural capital is the cultural knowledge that serves as the currency that helps us navigate a culture and alters our experiences and the opportunities available to us. This theory focuses on the embodied, objectified and institutionalized states of capital and is significantly important in assisting us in understanding inequality in education and other social structures. Further explanation of cultural capital can be found on page 365 of the Sociology 2e text by OpenStax College.

  • Removing cross-cultural stereotypes (Euro Mediterranean Education Project)

    About nine years ago I had the privilege of going to a Muslim nation for the first time. Before I went, I didn't know what to expect. I remember being very fearful because of my lack of knowledge and experience with Muslims and their culture. I grew up in a town that didn't have any Muslims and the only exposure that I had received was from television. In my mind, Muslims were people who hated Americans and wanted to kill us because we weren't Muslim. Looking back on it I laugh because of my naivety, but at that time these thoughts really scared me. I'm so glad that I was able to overcome my fears because once I was there my thinking drastically changed. I found that the Muslim people that I got to know were some of the most hospitable and kind people that I had ever met. I have been...

  • Cultural Capital

    French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu (1930--2002), developed the concepts of 'habitus' and cultural capital to explain the ways in which relationships of social inequality were reproduced through society and through the education system. 'Habitus' is similar to Husserl's concept of 'lifeworld', describing the dispositions or forms of subjectivity connected with a person's material, corporeal and symbolic attributes.

  • Social Reproduction, Cultural Capital, Bourdieu and The Jam

    In "Reproduction in Education, Society and Culture", Pierre Bourdieu and Jean-Claude Passeron argued that the school system sets up working class children to fail, channelling them into low-status occupations like those of their parents. Exams, by seeming to provide an objective measure of failure, obscure these structural disadvantages of working class children, and legitimise the reproduction of social inequality. More broadly, Bourdieu and Passeron claimed that all cultural institutions draw a veil over some kind of injustice or exploitation, and that this is their purpose. Certain habits and behaviours, such as speaking in a particular way or reading particular newspapers, constitute "cultural capital" that underpins the domination of higher social classes. These issues and concerns ar...

I'm so glad that I was able to overcome my fears because once I was there my thinking drastically changed. I found that the Muslim people that I got to know were some of the most hospitable and kind people that I had ever met. I have been to many Muslims countries now and have developed friendships with many there. They have opened my eyes to the stereotypes that I had once bought into. This video is my effort to try and help people think about this issue. I think we as Americans can get worked up about a group of people that often we know little about. Here are some questions for you: How many of you are afraid of Muslims? How many of you have ever met a Muslim? How many of you have had a Muslim friend? I think we fear because we're scared of the unknown. Have we made an effort to understand? I would love to see Americans start dialoging with Muslims both here and abroad. My Muslim friends in the Middle East and North Africa made me promise that I would tell my American friends that they aren't terrorists. I hope you enjoy this video that I made.
