A closer analysis of Bourdieu's theory of practice shows that a 'mismatch' or disjuncture between the field and habitus can trigger the 'awakening of consciousness' and make change or transformation of the habitus possible (Swartz 1997; Mills & Gale 2010). This raises the importance of schooling in the formation of the habitus. Student Preferences for Bachelor Degrees at TAFE: The socio-spatial influence of schools.

Carmen Mills and Trevor Gale make two important contributions to the sociology of education in this timely book. Through a detailed case study of one disadvantaged school – Crimson Brook Secondary College in rural Australia - they elucidate not only how inequalities are reproduced and legitimated through many of the practices of schooling, but also the possibilities for policies and practices which interrupt and destabilize such outcomes

Mills, Carmen and Gale, Trevor (2010). Schooling in disadvantaged communities: Playing the game from the back of the field. Dordrecht, The Netherlands: Springer. Based on a study of one secondary school located in a disadvantaged community within Australia, this book provides a different perspective on what it means to play the game of schooling. Drawing on the perspectives of teachers, parents and students, Crimson Brook Secondary College is a window through which to explore the possibilities of Schooling in Disadvantaged Communities.

Based on a study of one secondary school located in a disadvantaged community in Australia, this book provides a different perspective on what it means to ‘play the game’ of schooling. Drawing on the perspectives of teachers, parents and students, this book is a window through which to explore the possibilities of schooling in disadvantaged communities. The authors contend that teachers, parents and students themselves are all involved in the game of reproducing disadvantage in schooling, but similarly, they can play a part in opening up opportunities for change to enhance learning for marginalised students. Rather than only attempting to transform students, teachers should be also be concerned to transform schooling; to provide educational opportunities that transform the life experiences of and open up opportunities for all young people, especially those disadvantaged by poverty and marginalised by difference. The book is also designed to stimulate understanding of the work of Bourdieu as well as of a Bourdieuian approach to research. Seeing transformative potential in his theoretical constructs, it airs the possibility that schools can be more than mere reproducers of society.
