14 SES 12 B, Schooling in Rural/Urban Settings
This study is part of a social justice project which is focussed on access to schooling particularly in communities away from urban centres. This study looks at one element of access to school, the daily transition young people make from home to schools and particularly the journey to school by bus . In this project, the school bus is conceptualised as an agentic assemblage (Bennet, 2005) which emerges from a case study in a deprived rural community in the UK. This research reveals the school bus as a complex, troubling issue for young people and their transitions to school.
