Researching Social Capital in Education: Some Conceptual Considerations Relating to the Contribution of Network Analysis
Lee, Moosung
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v31 n6 p779-792 Nov 2010
This article discusses conceptual considerations for social capital research in education from a social network perspective. Specifically, the article raises three key conceptual issues that call for further elaboration of concepts of social capital: redefining potential resources as accessible but un-utilized sources of social capital; differentiating social capital itself from the process of social capital formation; and investigating both network orientation of resource-seekers and willingness of resource-givers. Based on these three conceptual issues, the article suggests conceptual considerations relevant to each issue for social capital research in education. (Contains 2 figures and 5 notes.)
