Title: Different Actions For Similar Behaviors: How Teachers Construct Socio-Semantic Networks Of Categories To Classify Students

Abstract: This study aims to analyze how frontline workers construct systems of categorization through the association of different types of categories and how these systems subsequently determine different policy deliveries. Using a semi-experiment, we provided vignettes to 40 teachers in Sao Paulo public schools to observe how they categorize similar behavior using different categories and types of actions. We analyzed the uses of these categories and actions to construct socio-semantic matrices and clusters that constitute a relational symbolic system where groups of codes might be close, far, and opposed to each other. The results suggest that the way frontline workers organize and deploy categories coalesces into culturally shared, “relational schemata.” In this way, the same categories gain different meanings and are related to different actions when the student’s context is changed. Con sequently, different systems of categorization constructed by teachers to evaluate similar behaviors generate distinct actions and policies. This may have important implications for policy access and inequalities in treatment.
