This book will contribute to the discussion of issues surrounding students who 'disengage' from public schools. The book describes a study which uses the theory of Pierre Bourdieu to investigate what types of economic, social, cultural, and symbolic capital influenced the individual academic achievement and personal life trajectories of two female high school students identified at-risk.
