Abstract

[This chapter examines the relationship between class, schooling and jobs. We seek to unpack the demeaning and humiliating practices associated with deficit thinking based on class, gender and race. As a counter, we advocate a more powerful kind of learning generated by a strengths and capabilities approach (Sen, A. (1992). Inequality re-examined. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press). In pursuing this agenda, the chapter is organised around three main themes:confronting class and gender stereotypesbuilding cultural capitaldeveloping skills, abilities and capabilities.]
