Expert's answer

Hidden curriculum consists of the things pupils learn through the experience of attending school, rather than the stated education objectives in the ‘formal curriculum’. The norms and values pupils learn in school correspond to the norms and values which will make it easy for future capitalist employers to exploit them at work. So, the correct answer is 4. A and c, because passive acceptance of hierarchy and fragmentation of school subjects will help in the future to become a good emploee.
