David, Miriam; Davies, Jackie; Edwards, Rosalind; Reay, Diane; Standing, Kay
Gender and Education, v9 n4 p397-410 Dec 1997
Explores, from a feminist perspective, the discourses of choice regarding how women make their choices as consumers in the education marketplace. It argues that mothers as parents are not free to choose but act within a range of constraints, i.e., their choices are limited by structural and moral possibilities in a patriarchal and racist society.
