Hidden Curriculum

The Hidden Curriculum project looks at the unintended and unrecognized forms of knowledge, values and beliefs that are part of learning processes and daily life within high schools. The project deals with the realm of communication within school, addressing its blind spots, hidden niches and mute practices. Together with high school students, and during regular class in school, the project tries to develop forms of investigation in order to approach the so-called Hidden Curriculum.
