By J. McGonigal, R. Doherty, J. Allan, S. Mills, R. Catts, M. Redford, A. McDonald, J. Mott and C. Buckley

Abstract

This paper synthesises a collaborative review of social capital theory, with particular regard for its relevance to the changing educational landscape within Scotland. The review considers the common and distinctive elements of social capital, developed by the founding fathers--Putnam, Bourdieu and Coleman--and explores how these might help to understand the changing contexts and pursue opportunities for growth
