The Spectre of Poverty in Distant Futures without University: Reflecting on Aspirations for Their Pre-Adolescent Children among Parents from Deprived Neighbourhoods in Glasgow
McKendrick, John H.
Scottish Educational Review, v47 n2 p100-104 2015
This research note argues that emerging research on poverty and education in Scotland needs to adopt a longer-term focus. Drawing on the work of Glasgow Caledonian University's "Caledonian Club," it reflects on evidence that one-third of parents who consider that their primary and nursery school children will not attend university when they are older also perceive that the cost of a university education will be a barrier to participation.
