Investigating Life in School



Understanding life in school requires getting close to the experiences of school had by the young people for whom school is ostensibly designed. For as Dewey (1929) recognized, it is these young people — usually described as students — who “are the only ones who come into direct contact with the whole process” of school (p. 404). In order to investigate life in school as a researcher, one must design a study that enables the experiences of young people to shine through.
