This study tells the story of how the educational choices made by a group of mothers and fathers made them complicitous with inequality. The project shows how school choice policies intended to be more democratic often just reproduce the inequalities they attack. This book draws on work describing market models of school choices by researchers such as Chubb and Moe, critical and poststructuralist analyses by UK scholars such as Stephen Ball, and discussions by researchers such as Michael Apple on neoliberalism, and what he calls 'conservative modernization'.
