About this book

This book draws together analysis of  class, gender, ethnicity and processes of migration in the context of family-school relationships. It provides an original analysis of the role of  class as gendered and ethnicised in the explanation of the reproduction of educational inequalities. This book’s analysis of  class is developed through insights into how class, gender, ethnicity and religion are interrelated and connected to patterns of advantages and disadvantages in transnational flows. ​ It explores  parental involvement in children’s education in the migratory  context as a key site for the analysis of social class positioning and repositioning, focusing on a group of migrant Muslim mothers living in Australia. This book sheds lights on the interconnection of class, gender, ethnicity and religion embedded in migrant mothers’ lives and the roles of these facets in regard to the education of their children. Delving into  Muslim migrant mothers’ practices and beliefs concerning their involvement provides new understanding of how support of children’s education is shaped by the process of migration along with the neoliberal reforms of education systems and in particular repositioning of social class.
