|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9563||Date:||Mar-2018||Abstract:||Mindful of the political and cultural context preceding the introduction of ‘free education’, this paper engages reflexively with the contemporary educational ‘common sense’ that equalizing opportunities in education is an effective means of overcoming social class inequalities and promoting a meritocratic society more generally in Ireland. In doing so, it is mindful of fact that there is no view from nowhere in academic life: academics, including the authors, do not stand on neutral intellectual ground; their personal and intellectual premises and values underpin their theoretical positions (Crean and Lynch, 2011; Gouldner 1970; Lynch and Ivancheva 2015).||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Peter Lang||Copyright (published version):||2018 Peter Lang||Keywords:||Education; Economic inequality; Meritocracy; Equality of condition||DOI:||10.3726/b13222||Other versions:||https://www.peterlang.com/view/title/63379||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Harford J.
