Social Capital, Children and Young People

George MacBride

Policy Press

In this commentary chapter, George MacBride reviews the chapters in the first half of the book and explores the implications of the case studies for policy and practice, specifically in relation to inclusion. He voices suspicion about social capital being expected to stand in place of state provision for vulnerable groups and is critical of debates that centre on social capital and social mobility and which thereby sidestep the real issues of inequality in society. MacBride also demonstrates vividly how much of the new Scottish curriculum framework, Curriculum for Excellence, encompasses social capital and outlines the opportunities for developing this among children and young people.
