Machin, Denry – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018

Sukarieh, Mayssoun; Tannock, Stuart – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2017
Currently dominant human capital and knowledge economy rhetoric holds that education can raise wages, empower workers and enhance working conditions.

In China, there is a growing group of "migrant children", who reside in the city but do not have full rights to access education.

The reviews of papers for refereed journals are rarely a source of exhilaration, only occasionally a pleasure and frequently dispiriting.

Bourdieu's concepts of fields of power, position taking,…
