About this item

This book explores the role of grassroots campaigning for public education as a middle-class school choice strategy. Drawing upon a rich, ethnographic study of long-term campaigns lobbying the Victorian State Government in Australia, it offers an original and innovative concept of ‘geo-identity’, arguing for the importance of a spatial analysis of school choice and class identity. Chapters pay critical attention to the public school as a means to achieve empowerment and overcome discrimination, using both a local and global lens to identify how parents choose the public school, the values they attach to it, and the strategies they use to obtain it.
