White Middle Class Identities and Urban Schooling. Identity Studies in the Social Sciences
Reay, Diane; Crozier, Gill; James, David
Palgrave Macmillan
This book examines experiences and implications of "against-the-grain" school choices, where white middle class families choose ordinary and "low performing" secondary schools for their children. It offers a unique view of identity formation, taking in matters like family history, locality and whiteness.
