Working-Class Minority Students' Routes to Higher Education. Routledge Research in Education
Espinoza, Roberta
Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group
While stories of working-class and minority students overcoming obstacles to attend and graduate from college tend to emphasize the individualistic and meritocratic aspect, this book--based in extensive empiral study of American high school classrooms, and in theories of social and cultural capital--examines the social relations that often underpin such successes, highlighting the significant formal and informal academic interventions by educators and other education professionals.
