Children, Home and School
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This study explores the key institutional settings of home and school, and other educationally linked organized spaces, in children's lives, and the relationships between these. Contributors consider whether and how children, from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances, are positioned and see themselves as autonomous within, connected to, or regulated by home and school. Chapters look at: students' rights in British schools; the impact of education reforms on the lives of primary school children, their teachers and researchers; the adults' role; home-school relations; the transition to elementary school; adolescents; after school clubs; socialization at home and school; childhood disability and its affect on life at home and at school; and refugee children.
