This chapter focuses on educational provision, particularly on schooling, as influential in shaping life experiences and expectations, including changes in the selection and allocation of pupils to different types of schools and the social implications of segregated schooling. The examples in the chapter focus on some key issues at the interface between private lives and public education policies – on the personal and policy factors that influenced choice of school and college, the ways in which institutional provision shaped those choices, on the social experience of educational settings, and on academic expectations and achievements.

Keywords:   schooling, educational provision, segregated schooling, education policy
