Trajectories of Experiences and Outcomes
This chapter reflects upon patterns of educational and socioeconomic outcomes among the participants within a historical context. Thus, in addition to the knowledge claim in this book, it addresses the dearth in our understanding of how psychosocial resources feature in educational and socioeconomic outcomes. The chapter ends with an attempt to situate the knowledge claim within the social science literature on diversity and disadvantages among social groups in education and socioeconomic domains and, more specifically, contemporary social [groups] psychology.
