The Working-Class Student in Higher Education: Addressing a Class-Based Understanding challenges understandings of social class and education by asking how community college faculty perceive working-class students and how that perception reflects class-based assumptions in higher education. Faculty may recognize social class, but how it is experienced within higher education is often "lost in translation," particularly when faculty members are interacting with a differently classed student population. Recommended for scholars of education, pedagogy, and sociology.
