Abstract

Political mobility (Brady et al 2015: Scholzman 2012), the inequalities in chances for a young person to politically engage from a family that is politically active compared to a family which is less so, is an emerging field of study. This paper will explore one step in the process of political mobility focusing on the transition of discussion of politics in the home and how this influences access to open classroom climate in the school. The paper will explore the extent that this process has a mediating effect on future political engagement.
