|Editor||A. Ross, The Experience of Citizenship|
In this paper the impact of the hidden curriculum on the process of the teaching and learning of boys and girls in Polish schools will be described. Although this is not a new research approach, results of previous work in the area are not well recognised in the community of educators, and are treated as anecdotal data rather than as information about a critical process during which future citizens are prepared. There is no chance for equality and freedom if the voices of certain groups are not heard. Because in the public discourse the language of the dominant group is used, even today women participating in public life experience obstacles. Oppressed groups are not able to verbalise their ideas using language created and monopolised by the dominant group.
