Why university? A case of socio-cultural reproduction in disadvantaged secondary schools

21 Apr 2005
Description

Deborah Tranter examines the influence of school culture on the higher education aspirations of secondary students in one of the most socioeconomically and educationally disadvantaged regions in Australia: the outer northern suburbs of Adelaide. Using a case study approach, it investigates the attitudes towards higher education of students from three schools in this area, with a particular focus on how and why these students make personal decisions about higher education.
