The article introduces Luhmann's theory of educational systems and compares it wih Bourdieu's somewhat parallel theory. Both theories warns against an 'overintegrated' educational system. 'Overintegration' occurs when the educational system looses its monopoly of interpreting itself according to its communication about 'lerarning of lerning'(Humboldt). Other communication codes enters the communication about the autnomy of the pubil as a subdifferentiet individuality free of irrelevant codes. Education based on the 'tyranny of intimacy'  (Sennett) is a danger for a well-formed educated individuality.
