In this chapter we discuss what we tenn the iriformal curriculum, that course of study which, although not deliberately offered in U, S, schools, nonetheless penneates the school context and is learned in some fashion by most students. The informal curriculum is not official; it is not prescribed, orchestrated, or monitored. Yet, we argue, it is the stuff of schooling-the continuous, albeit uncoordinated, stream of momentary experiences that students aggregate and internalize with varying degrees of awareness, protest, and satisfaction.
