Book Description

Griffith and Smith explore the innumerable, hidden, seemingly mundane tasks like getting kids ready for school, helping with homework, or serving on the PTA can all have profound effects on what occurs within school. Based on longitudinal interviews with mothers of school-age children, this book exposes the effects mothers' work has on educational systems as a whole and the ways in which inequalities of educational opportunities are reproduced.



Alison Griffith is associate professor, Faculty of Education, York University.
Dorothy Smith is professor emerita, Department of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education, OISE, University of Toronto.
