About this item

Through rich ethnographic detail, Urban Educational Identity: Seeing Students on Their Own Termstells the complicated story of a high-achieving, high-poverty urban high school. Drawing on over two years of intensive fieldwork and analysis, author Sara M. Childers shows how students made amazing gains in achievement by subverting the constrainig effects of federal policy. At the same time, Childers challenges preconceived deficit notions about urban students. By developing a concept of urban cachet, she shows how deficit discourses of race and class were deeply entwined with the very practices fo success that propelled students towards graduation and college entrance.
