The Educational Strategies of the Black Middle Classes

Carol Vincent, UCL Institute of Education,  discusses the two-year period (June 2009-June 2011) research focusing on 62 parents of Black Caribbean heritage. All had children between the ages of 8 and 18 (an age range that spans key decision-making points in the English education system). Thirteen fathers were included in the sample, in addition the team re-interviewed 15 parents, giving us a total of 77 in-depth interviews including questions about their experiences of the education system, their aspirations for their children’s futures and how their experiences are shaped by race and social class.
