Metropolitan Regions--New Geographies of Inequality in Education: The Chicago Metroregion Case
Lipman, Pauline
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v3 n2 p141-163 Jul 2005
This paper examines the changing nature of metroregions and their schools. It discusses the influence of global neo-liberalism and resistance on processes of social differentiation through case studies of Chicago metroregion communities and schools. Using spatial theory, the paper argues that while the restructuring of metroregions creates inequality and marginality, it also bears seeds of a more multicultural, transnational perspective and resistance. (Contains 11 notes.)
