School and choice. An ethnography of a primary school with bilingual classes
Finnish Educational Research Association
Kasvatusalan tutkimuksia – Research in Educational Sciences 50
Jyväskylä 2010, 436 pp.


This is a study of the phenomenon of school choice, analysing the thinking that it encourages about teachers, parents, and pupils, and how this influences educational practices. It develops an ethnographic study of a Finnish primary school that has introduced specialised classes in foreign language learning in English, selecting pupils for these classes. It examines discourses of inclusion, and how these are connected to notions of nationed, ethnicised and classed differences in school. The study is informed by feminist poststructural theorisations concerning subject formation and the production of social difference.
