About this book

This book examines the experiences and perspectives of students and teachers at an alternative music school, which caters for young learners who have been marginalised and disenfranchised from mainstream schooling. The school utilises a rich music-infused curriculum that connects to the lives of its students, alongside a democratic ethos and ethic of care for members of the school community, including the students, teachers, and parents. The combination of personal narratives together with detailed critical discussion, provides a compelling argument for how schools can make a major difference to the lives of young people. The case study presented in this book offers one potential response to the institutionalised social and educational inequities that young people continue to face, and highlights the important lessons from alternative schooling for education more broadly. It will be of particular interest to researchers in the areas of education and sociology, especially those concerned with matters of social justice and equity in education.

Reviews

“A compelling account of the reasons why young people still need an alternative school to give them the second, third or even fourth chance to get the education they need and deserve.” (Pat Thompson, Professor of Education, Nottingham University, UK)

“In a time when neoliberal and neoconservative policies are increasingly dominant in education, we need examples that give us hope.  That is exactly what Stewart Riddle and David Cleaver give us. Alternative Schooling, Social Justice and Marginalized Students is a fine piece of work--politically wise, very thoughtful, and well-gounded in the daily life of a lively example of more responsive schooling.” (Michael W. Apple, John Bascom Professor of Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA, and author of Can Education Change Society)
