Bourdieu and education: Acts of practical theory
They read to their kids before bed. Their kids see them reading. All of these attributes make it infinitely more likely that their kids are going to succeed and the kids of parents who do not have these forms of social and cultural capital are going to struggle. But here is the beauty of the system.
The deck is stacked, but even so some kids will get to move in the 'wrong' direction from what one might have guessed. For the system to work it needs to have this kind of movement. Then people from the middle class can pretend they had no advantages at all and that it was all a matter of their own hard work - of merit.

This comes from the idea that the researcher is actually part of the world that is being researched and so they contribute to and affect that world too.
That is, there is no outside to stand and look in from. And if there is no outside then how do we get an objective view? And as an object we get a glimpse of objectivity in what might otherwise look like a turn towards subjectivity. That's too hard to be understood.

If we make ourselves an object of our study, how we feel and how we understand what we are researching, then we have some hope of seeing our habitus and how this impacts on what we are studying. This is a pity, but I still do think his ideas have lots to offer researchers.
