Inequality in Higher Education: A Study of Class Barriers.
Lynch, Kathleen; O'Riordan, Claire
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v19 n4 p445-78 Dec 1998
Examines the economic, social/cultural, and educational barriers that low-income, working-class, Irish students experience in accessing higher education. Suggests that the dynamic role of the state, in creating and maintaining inequality, needs to be systematically addressed; resistance can be accomplished by targeting structures from state institutional systems to the individual practices in classrooms.
