Education and the Educationally Disadvantaged Strata

The German term ›Bildungsferne‹ – literally translated as ›distance from education‹ – is structured by a spatial metaphor: If there are persons ›far‹ or ›distant‹ from education, there must me persons ›close‹ or ›near‹ to education. The limits of the term become obvious after a quick inquiry. A purely formal and/or institutional understanding of education is suggested by the term. Looking at education from perspectives provided by language philosophy and anthropology, the use of the term within educational discourse is questioned.
