Abstract:

The ‘shunning of outsiders’ can be considered as a discreet case of social segregation, particularly when it occurs as a parallel outcome of an educational process taking place within the context of a vocational educational institution. Cultural affinity, as both a prerequisite and a final product of a target-oriented educational endeavour, presents the advantage of facilitating the circulation and sharing of information and of offering mutually shared codes for the decoding and understanding of the full meaning contained in the transmitted information in education. Nonetheless, as this research in the Merchant Marine Academy of Greece indicates, social segregation can be acknowledged as a consequence of an official admonition to ‘educational improvement’ in the field of maritime education. The findings of this research suggest that the reproduction of the Greek nautical ethos through education and practical training corresponds to the reproduction of social conformity within a cultural model of behavior.
