In this way, the Jock and Burnout categories come to mediate adult social class within the adolescent context. This book, based on three years of participant observation in Belten High and in four other high schools in the suburban Detroit area, will describe the role of the Jock and Burnout categories in the reproduction of adult social class. It will show how an adolescent social structure characterized by an opposition between Jocks and Burnouts integrates the forces of neighborhood and family experience, the structure and norms of the school, and peer social interaction in such a way as to polarize attitudes and behavior along class lines.

In other words, the theory of cultural deprivation so popular in the 1950s and 1960s has found its place in the social ideology of Belten High School. In actuality, the years that lead up to secondary school witness a multifaceted process of separation of children on the basis of class and (in many schools) ethnicity, in which children's beliefs are built on adults' beliefs, and in which individual beliefs are built into group beliefs. At no stage can one realistically talk about children's or adolescents' choice without understanding the dynamics of schooling and of the relation between schooling and children's and adolescents' social groups.

But just as there are Jocks who are not athletes, there are Burnouts who Page 4 do not do drugs. Drugs are this generation's most frightening form of rebellion, and as such they are taken as a symbol by and for the school's alienated category. One might more properly consider that these alienated adolescents are "burned out" from long years of frustration encountered in an institution that rejects and stigmatizes them as it fails to recognize and meet their needs. The complexity of the connotations of the category names is reflected in their use.
