hawwc boys: child and family case studies

The intention of the child and family case studies, the creation of which formed the first phase of this project, was to generate new knowledge about how to better support the achievement of white working class young boys, at home and in early years settings.

The co-construction of the case studies was intended to be affirmative, empowering and developmental for the parents and young boys involved in the project, and to enhance the capacity for social mobility within the white working class communities in which they lived.

The following 21 case studies make up part of our online resource, and reveal the complexity of family circumstances and dynamic nature of the inter-relationships between those elements of success, and how academic and parenting resilience is achieved in real lives.

All of the case studies are available as individual PDFs and can be accessed via the thumbnail images below:
