Working-Class Education and Social Change in Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Britain
Woodin, Tom
History of Education, v36 n4-5 p483-496 Jul 2007
Recent decades have witnessed the waning fortunes of social class as a historical category of analysis. In particular working-class education is rarely discussed in historiography although there has been significant work done in this area, particularly in adult education and literacy. A reassessment of these studies allows us to examine the ways in which working-class educational initiatives have been conceived in the past and how they might be approached in the future.
