Journal of Social Issues, Psychological Meanings of Social Class in the Context of Education
Joan M. Ostrove, Elizabeth Cole
Wiley, Dec 12, 2003 - Psychology - 248 pages
This issue of JSI is an effort to engage psychologists in a critical study of social class; that is, a systematic, research-based literature focused on the exploration of the psychological meaning of social class to diverse groups of people. Because educational institutions both attempt to offer opportunity and often simultaneously reproduce existing class stratification, the context of education is an ideal stage on which to watch the dynamics and contradictions of class play out in both individual and social psychology.
