Freire and Bourdieu Questions

Hi Group! Here are the questions for this weeks readings! Sorry they are a bit late, I was unable to post them earlier!

1) In what ways does the American school system promote the hierarchical structure and society of “the oppressors” vs. “the oppressed”?

2) How do we balance our understanding of the importance of social and cultural capital as important aspects in achieving the “capitalistic, American ideal of success,” and perpetuating conformity into Freire’s problematic notion that the oppressed idealize and strive to be like the oppressors?
