The school culture (that is,“regularities” in school
practice) appears to stress passive, rote learning in many elementary and
secondary schools, particularly in working-class schools and mixed-class
schools with relatively large numbers of low-achieving students.This happens in
part because schools, as institutions, must maintain orderly environments;
because many students prefer passive learning; because teachers generally
cannot adequately attend to the learning needs of all students; and because
society requires that students learn to function within institutions.
