PEROSA, Graziela Serroni. Learning social differences: class, gender and body in a school for girls. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2006, n.26, pp. 87-111. ISSN 0104-8333.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-83332006000100005.

This article discusses the relation between education and social stratification by means of a confessional private school for girls, targeting high-income families in the city of São Paulo circa 1960. The investigation focuses on the school's modalities of participation in the production of body dispositions and specific social skills, in an attempt to demonstrate how schooling methods may be the basis for learning class and gender differences. Methodological procedures included questionnaires, interviews with ex-students, principals and ex-teachers, and the analysis of photographs of the school's premises and routine. The results suggest that examining schooling modalities is particularly efficacious to the understanding of social differentiation processes in contemporary societies.
