Summary
So where did you go to school? is a question that still pricks at our pride and prejudices. The weight of this question is borne by children and parents across generations, still playing a key part in forming our notions of identity and society. This study tells the story of how the educational choices made by a group of mothers and fathers made them complicitous with inequality. The project shows how school choice policies intended to be more democratic often just reproduce the inequalities they attack. This book draws on work describing market models of school choices by researchers such as Chubb and Moe, critical and poststructuralist analyses by UK scholars such as Stephen Ball, and discussions by researchers such as Michael Apple on neoliberalism, and what he calls conservative modernization
