Comparing Race, Class and Gender

  • Liz Jackson
Chapter
Part of the CERC Studies in Comparative Education book series (CERC, volume 19)

Abstract

As Mark Mason writes in this volume (p.253), “comparative educational research yields the most worthwhile results, from an ethical perspective at least, when researchers attempt, from the very conceptualisation of their projects, to identify the axes along which educational and other goods are differentially distributed, and to disaggregate their object of study along those axes”.
