Sample text

Recognition by students and teachers of this lack, and of its displacement by apparatus defined abstractions of identity which the peer subcultural process then fills in what has already been ‘rationally’ outlined, is indicated by the simple phrase: ‘nobody cares’. This as a variant of Habermas’ (1984) thesis of the dialectic of the rationalization of the lifeworld that precipitates crises of legitimation. The dessication of everyday socio-emotional life, the ‘lifeworld’, if you prefer, is multicausal and it comes at dialogical interaction from both sides.

There was this one teacher who was always saying, “Oh, you are all losers”. Yeah, and one day I came right out and asked him why is he always picking on us? From then on, it was like, not a problem…Teachers insulted three of the kids in our group…they use cutdowns… But there is nothing you can do 38 WORKING CLASS: NOBODY CARES about authority. Nothing. Authority doesn’t want you to think. They just want you to do…’ The effect is to bring to the surface the mutual non-caring, and to explain student withdrawal on the ground of teacher withdrawal.

But that was not the usual tenor of the voices calling for change. The presenting problem, and simultaneously, its solution, was ‘structure’. The most favored narrative of administrators and teachers was that the population of Penbroke suburb had changed and in addition, there were more family problems even among its customary denizens. As a result, students were unable to handle the ‘freedom’ and flexibility of the current social organization of the school; there was a need for ‘more structure’.
