Schooling for Social Mobility: High School Reform for College Access and Success
Hammack, Floyd M.
Journal of School Choice, v10 n1 p96-111 2016
This article addresses what schools that seek to promote social mobility as opposed to status maintenance among their students really ask of them. Focusing on several prominent charter school organizations, the article details the social and behavioral expectations of the schools and understands them through an application of Goffman's work on status change. The article concludes that social mobility through education requires much more than higher levels of academic achievement.
