Educational Equity in Poor Urban Contexts--Exploring Issues of Place/Space and Young People's Identity and Agency
Raffo, Carlo
British Journal of Educational Studies, v59 n1 p1-19 2011
An enduring concern for educational policy in many affluent countries is the endemic nature of educational inequalities that are predominately located in poor urban contexts. Given the inabilities of school reform "per se" to deal with these inequalities, the paper focuses on issues of scarcity and spatial processes that are implicated in the formation of young people's educational identities--identities that then mediate the conversion of educational resources into educational attainments or achievements.
