Mothers and Education: Inside Out? : Exploring Family-Education Policy and Experience by Miriam David, Rosalind Edwards, Mary Hughes, Jane Ribbens

This book is about aspects of the relationships between mothers and education at different levels in the education system. In particular we look at mothers of young children in relation to educational policies, in interaction with their children's schools and teachers, as students themselves in post-school education. We address the various policy settings and other contexts in which mothers are situated as well as exploring their experiences and understandings.
The subtitle 'Exploring family-education policy and experience' is intended to reveal our twin approaches: on the one hand we explore the ways in which mothers and the idea of mothering have been constructed and viewed by educational policies and practices; on the other hand we also review the ways in which mothers have constructed and experienced education policies and practices.
The book argues for mothers' ways of understanding and interpreting the world to be included in public agendas for their own sakes, those of their children and their education, and for a richer, more moral, world.
