Reveals new features in the analysis of social classes and political power. Arising probably from the intense interest in cultural dominance and cultural revolution that emerged in radical movements... these investigations connect cultural phenomena firmly within the structural characteristics of a society, and begin to show how a culture produced by this structure in turn helps to maintain it. (Tom Bottomore)
The most striking successes of their work are their redefinitions of the very character of educational research... There is an especially brilliant discussion of the relations between a traditional literary culture and selection for arts courses.

What we face now is a long-term education reform movement to achieve student growth in large part through accountability. On the surface it seems fine yet socio-economic factors are non-random.
Another way of looking at the problem of school reform is that we're still stuck with industrial-era public schools. Those schools were designed to efficiently produce in scale the kinds of people needed for factory work and clerical work (for the most part - there are exceptions but those exceptions tend to have a lot to do with socio-economic status).
Now we apparently need a different type(s) of worker(s). Yet again though, despite attempts to the contrary we're likely to reproduce the status quo in the sense that Boudieu conveys. For this reason I think the book continues to be relevant.
