This book provides an inclusive and incisive analysis of the experiences of working-class young people in education. While there is an established literature on education and the working class stretching back decades, comparatively there has been something of a neglect of class-based inequality - with questions of gender, 'race' and other forms of identity attracting significant attention. However, events including Britain's 2016 decision to leave the European Union, have thrown social class into sharp focus, both in the UK and elsewhere. Featuring leading thinkers in the sociology of education, this book examines the different ways in which young people relate to various parts of the education system, including different forms of schooling, post-compulsory and university education. They maintain that the issue of social class goes beyond the walls of specific institutions to affect young people in a variety of ways: not only in the UK, but across the globe. This book will be of great value and interest to students and scholars of the sociology of education, working-class youth, and equality of opportunity.

"A particular feature of this book is that it draws on the work of leading scholars whose own experiences of class-based inequalities contribute to their understandings of the relationship between education and social class. ... this book is thought provoking and makes an important contribution to the discipline of education and social class. It is highly recommended: educators, researchers, policy makers and students would certainly benefit from the contributions in this book." (Carlene Cornish, British Journal of Educational Studies, October 22, 2019)
