Visible, invisible pedagogy and struggle in (middle) class
Dr. Slavko Gaber and Veronika Tašner

Summary:  Authors classify and present elements of visible and invisible pedagogy – the concept of Basil Bernstein – that are of importance for additional insights in to the logic and structures of educational change (reform). Reforms are deconstructed as process of struggles for hegemony – dominant conceptualizations, values and interests – in the society. Slovenian »reform« in the last decade and half, is presented as an example of the reform which, despite its image of broad »pro-education« nation wide project, is enacted through the struggles inside middle class (old/new). Interests, values, conceptions of lower classes are to the signifi cant degree at the margin of the logic of the reform.
