Girls and Transition to Second-Level Schooling in Ireland: "Moving On" and "Moving Out."
O'Brien, Maeve
Gender and Education, v15 n3 p249-67 Sep 2003
Explored how Irish girls from different social classes negotiated the transition from elementary to secondary education and how their classed and gendered identities were produced and reproduced during the transition. The transition was especially challenging for working class girls who experienced emotional pain and loss in leaving familiar schools. Girls were included, excluded, and differentiated based on adherence to and acceptance of dominant middle class and gendered norms. (SM)
