Book published on working-class youth

Amy E. Stich, Northern Illinois University, and Carrie Freie, Pennsylvania State University, have co-edited The Working Classes and Higher Education: Inequality of Access, Opportunity and Outcome, published by Routledge, 2016.  With a foreword by Lois Weis, the volume, as stated on the Routledge website, “examines the complicated relationship between the working classes and higher education through students’ distinct experiences, challenges, and triumphs during three moments on a transitional continuum: the transition from secondary to higher education; experiences within higher education; and the transition from higher education to the workforce. In doing so, this volume challenges the popular notion of higher education as a means to equality of opportunity and social mobility for working-class students.”
