Abstract

My contention within this thesis is that there is an absence of literature on working class girls within both the gender and education and social class and education literature. I draw on issues related to girls and education and on more recent issues on boys and education, to deternnine what has been said about working class girls. It became apparent that there was very little written on working class girls within the body of literature. Then I chose to explore social class and education to find out if working class girls are discussed. It was also found that not much had been written on working class girls in social class and education literature. In my final chapter I suggest ways to address the absence of working class girls by recommending some questions that can be addressed In future research, so that a real understanding of what is happening with working class girls within the education system can be achieved.
