Reay wins the Jake Ryan Book Award

Congratulations to Diane Reay and her book Miseducation which won the Working-Class Studies Association Jake Ryan Book Award, which honours a publication from the past two years that speaks to issues of importance to the working-class academic experience.  .

One judge commented: “This work is an important capstone to a long career exploring class and education. Reay artfully weaves together a trenchant critique of the educational system and its pretensions to facilitating social mobility with biographical anecdotes of passionate intensity.”
