Additional Information: This chapter appears in the first major international handbook on gender and education. It is co-written with a top academic scholar on the area of girls, class and education. It engages with important debates on upward mobility in neo-liberal educational contexts, exploring how these issues affect educational subjects who are excluded from the system as failures, tracing a case study narrative from a young, working class woman. The chapter draws on research from the longitudinal ESRC funded project, 4:21: The transition to womanhood.
