    Kind of a weird question but can I use Reggie Yates: Extreme Russia as an exmple when talking about overt particaption. With the example of when he went around with the far right russians.
    Don't see why not, or you could say 'for example on many documentaries...'

    Im not sure you Can use that as overt participation i think its more of an overt observational study as he didn't take part in the actual rally but thats great contextual knowledge.

    Depends on the viewpoint:

    Marxism: 3 main people are Althusser then Bowles and Gintis
    produces subservient workforce
    Teaches acceptance of hierarchy
    Controls working class ideas
    Transmits ruling class values
    Myth of meritocracy
    Etc

    Functionalists are parsons (social solidarity, transmits norms and values) , Durkheim and Davis and Moore (role allocation by sifting and sorting)

    The new right are Chubb and Moe, they believe that the education system has to have two functions: marketisation and parentocracy

    Ythe sociologists you've done might be different. hope this helps!!!!
    Ah yes that does thank you for the help!

    Don't think the sociologist is important, but here's a good idea of what you need to know 'PERVERT'
    Practical issues
    Ethical issues
    Reliability
    Validity
    Experimenter bias
    Representativeness
    Theoretical perspective

    So remember this for the exam and as you're answering do a paragraph or more on each, that'll help you even if the question is a really difficult one, hope this helps!

    which sociologist would you use when answering the question: "outline some of the reasons why pupils form subcultures in schools."
    Would you bring in Willis, Lacey, Epstein, fuller and sewell? would you talk about Social class factors, as well as gender and ethnicity?

    Marxist perspectives on education:

    Marxists believe that the education system reproduces existing social class inequalities and passes them on from one generation to the next. At the same time, it does this by giving the impression that those whole fail in the education system do so because of their lack of ability and effort and have only themselves to blame. (Don't let this be you tomorrow)

    Althusser (1971) says that the main role of education in a capitalist society is to reproduce a efficient and obedient labour force.
    - The reproduction of the necessary technical skills
    - The reproduction of ruling class ideology and the socialisation of workers into accepting this dominant ideology

    For the working class to accept the ruling class ideology there must be a process called the ideological state apparatuses (social groups - media, law, religion, education etc)
    Workers are persuaded to accept and submit to exploitation,

    Bowles and Gintis
    They again believe the same as Althusser but also have a different overlook on it such as:
    The hidden curriculum serves as a job in a sense as they believe that school sets them up for the real word in work through schedules, uniform, breaks etc.
    Their second idea is that of the legitimation of inequality and that education:
    - Helps to maintain, justify and explain the system of social inequality of capitalist society
    - Helps people to come to terms with their own position in it
    - Helps to reduce discontent and opposition to inequality.
